On Wednesday March 19, Université Sainte-Anne and The Canada Council for the Arts will present readings by two fiction writers: two-time Giller-nominee Lisa Moore and Sainte-Anne professor Darryl Whetter.

Novelist, short-story writer and Canada Reads panelist Lisa Moore lives in St. John’s and two of her three books of fiction have been short-listed for the Giller Prize, and her novel Alligator won a Commonwealth Writers' Prize.

Darryl Whetter`s first book was named to The Globe and Mail’s Top 100 Books of 2003. He contributes regularly to national media, including The National Post, The Globe and Mail, The Vancouver Sun and CBC Radio’s Talking Books. His debut novel, The Push & the Pull, will be in bookstores soon. These readings are free and open to the public and start at 7:30 p.m. in the university’s chapel.
