HOLD THE DATE:  BROWN BAG LUNCH FEATURING CHRIS BENJAMIN

C_Benjjamin bookChris Benjamin is a freelance writer and journalist living in Halifax who has written a book, Indian School Road, which documents some of the history associated with the Subenacadie Residential School. He has agreed to come to UPEI on September 18 to present a Brown Bag lunch that will include a reading from his book. We have booked Main Faculty Lounge for this event. The Brown Bag starts at 12:00 and will finish by 1:00 though the dialogue may continue.

One of the pertinent issues that Chris addresses in his book focuses on the role and responsibility of non-Aboriginal Canadians in the process of reconciliation and healing. This is stressed by Justice Murray Sinclair in his comments on CBC last week. Please contact Fiona Walton if you would like further information about this valuable visit.

SALON DU LIVRE DE L’ÎLE-DU-PRINCE-ÉDOUARD

The Faculty of Education was proud to collaborate with the organizing committee for the Salon du livre de l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard.  The French book expo was presented at UPEI from June 3-7, and it provided the Acadian, Francophone and Francophile population the opportunity to access a wide variety of French language literary works and meet authors and illustrators.  The expo was a great success, and we were pleased to be a part of the event.
