Poet and Alumna Julia McCarthy reads at St. Jerome’s!

Poet (and alumna!) Julia McCarthy will be visiting us on Thursday, 8 March, at 4:30pm in STJ 3014. Hope to see you at another great reading in this year’s series! The reading is free and all are welcome. Please spread the word!

We’re delighted to be working once again with Brick Books to make this reading happen, and grateful for their support, along with the generosity of the Canada Council for the Arts, and the St. Jerome’s English Department.
