As part of our Friday Night Fiction event (8pm, Memorial Hall UNB), we are holding a silent auction of 3 donated paintings and 1 sculpture. These will also be on display at our Book Fair (Wednesday, 3-7pm, Fredericton Public Library) to whet your appetite. Thanks very much to the artists for these beautiful donations: Kris Leblanc, T.A. Fox, Jane Tims, and Wayne Sears!
