Island author and UPEI professor Richard Lemm will give a presentation on his recent stay in Tasmania as writer-in-residence. His residency was part of the annual PEI-Tasmania writer-in-residence exchange. His talk, in the UPEI Faculty Lounge on Tuesday evening, January 26 (Australia Day!) at 7:30, will include a slide-show and poems written while in Tasmania. Admission is free.
The writer-in-residence exchange is sponsored, on P.E.I., by the UPEI Dean of Arts and Department of English, the PEI Writers’ Guild, and the Institute of Island Studies. The Tasmanian Writers’ Centre is the counterpart down under, with additional support for Dr. Lemm’s residency from the Lord Mayor of Hobart, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the P.E.I. Council of the Arts.
