Novelist, essayist and short story writer Lynn Coady will read from her
newest novel Mean Boy on Tuesday, Oct. 24, at 8 p.m. in the Alumni Memorial
Hall, University of New Brunswick Fredericton. Everyone is welcome to

Mean Boy, Ms. Coady’s fourth book, is a brilliant and furiously witty look
at a creative writing class in a small-town New Brunswick university. The
novel, known as Ms. Coady’s best and most ambitious to date, is "pungently
realistic, bolstered by hilarious set-piece scenes" (The Globe & Mail).

A Cape Breton native, Ms. Coady attended Carleton University for her BA and
received an MFA from the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, where
she now resides. She is the recipient of numerous awards for her fiction.
Her novel Strange Heaven was short listed for the Governor-General's Award
for Fiction in 1998 and her short story collection Play the Monster Blind
won the Canadian Authors’ Association's Jubilee Award for a short fiction
collection in 2001.

The reading is sponsored by UNBF’s department of English, the University
Bookstore and the Canada Council for the Arts.

For more information on the reading, contact Ross Leckie at 458-7395.
