Please join us for the UNB Reading Series on Thursday, Feb. 10, at 8 p.m. in the Alumni Memorial Lounge, featuring:

Richard Cumyn

In his new book, The Young in Their Country, Cumyn presents a range of stories about the ways youth break the expectations of the adult world, how they are both dangerous and endangered.

Steven Heighton notes that Richard Cumyn is "one of our finest story writers: exacting, surprising, deftly attuned both to language and to character, tough-minded and large-hearted at the same time—often within the same sentence."

This reading is free and open to the public.
