Deborah Joy Corey – Reading, Signing and Reception for Settling Twice

University of New Brunswick (UNB) Archives & Special Collections is honoured to be the repository for Deborah Joy Corey’s archival collection, which currently consists of material from her award-winning first novel, Losing Eddie, and will expand, as Corey has agreed to contribute all of her archival papers to UNB!

To celebrate this fantastic acquisition, UNB Libraries will host a reception and reading, which will feature Corey’s latest memoir about growing up in rural New Brunswick, Settling Twice.

The event will take place on Thursday, October 5 at the Harriet Irving Library, Milham Room (#100), UNB Campus, 5 MacAulay Lane, Fredericton, NB from 5-7 p.m. All are invited to attend. Corey will sign books during the event.

New Photography Exhibit

A new Photography Exhibit REFLECTIONS is located on the 1st floor of the Harriet Irving Library.

REFLECTIONS is the product of three years of Adam Travis’ work at the Brunswickan, the campus paper of the University of New Brunswick. Each photo essay highlights a facet of life at UNB and the unique experiences lived by different groups on campus. Despite the fact that an exhibit that showcases the full diversity of UNB would require an exhibit many times larger, many students should find some similarities between their own stories and the stories shown here: from the changing seasons of campus life to the triumph and heartache felt by student athletes, the struggle to balance our wants and obligations felt by Phil Taber and truly unique academic experiences, such as the cardboard boat race.
