The Lorenzo Society is pleased to announce Andrea Kikuchi as the new coordinator for the Lorenzo Reading Series.

Ms. Kikuchi is a writer and teacher with a Bachelor of Arts from UNB Saint John. She has taught writing workshops for the Write Stuff Festival, Word Collective and the Saint John Free School. She also serves on the board for the Fog Lit Writers and Readers Festival. In her spare time, she is working on her first full-length novel with her writing mentor, celebrated author Gerard Collins. Ms. Kikuchi lives in Saint John with her husband and two children.

The Lorenzo Society at UNB Saint John sponsors an impressive selection of cultural and intellectual entertainment for the enjoyment of the entire community.

The Lorenzo Society Reading Series has featured major Canadian authors such as Donna Morrissey, Patrick Rothfuss, Linden McIntyre and Wayne Johnston. Having won the Literary Arts Award at the inaugural event of the Originals – an Arts Awards for Saint John event – in June of 2010, the Reading Series is also recognized nationally by publicists, authors and publishing houses as “the” reading series.

The exciting 2016-17 reading line up continues to feature major Canadian writers such as Debra Komar, Riel Nason and UNB Saint John’s very own Greg Marquis.
