Extra credit

Every year UNBSJ hosts an excellent reading series organized by the Lorenzo Society. I am offering bonus marks for either of two levels of engagement:

  1. Dipping your toes: for each reading you attend, you will receive 0.5% added to your final grade. There are five readings scheduled this term.
  2. Going for a swim: for each brief review you post on your class weblog, you will receive up to an additional 0.5% added to your final grade, for a total of up to 1% for each.

1340The first reading of the term is scheduled for Wednesday September 14. Debra Komar will be reading from Black River Road,  a 19thc true-crime narrative set in Saint John. The other readings will be on campus but this one will be at the New Brunswick Museum in the Mary Oland Theatre at 7:30PM.

There should be a more detailed brochure coming shortly. I will link to it here. All readings are free.
