I’m sitting in an old farm kitchen in New Brunswick right now, reading The Maritime Edit, an absolutely stunning quarterly magazine “devoted to highlighting the heritage and lifestyle of the East Coast.” And on the contributors’ page, under the title “Literary Editor,” is a name I know very well: Alexandra Fournier. A UWaterloo MA English graduate, Fournier convocated in 2016 with a Masters in Literature, after completing a thesis on the adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice (1813) as The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (2012-2013). Keen-eyed Waterloo folks might catch that her “Essential Reads” column in the current issue of The Maritime Edit includes a mention of another one of our English alumna.
