The McMaster community and members of the public are invited to join McMaster's new Writer-in-Residence, Christine Pountney  for a welcome reception and reading to take place at the Hamilton Public Library, Central Branch on Monday, September 26 2016 at 7p.m.

Pountney was recently named the Mabel Pugh Taylor Writer-in-Residence in partnership with McMaster's Department of English and Cultural Studies and the Hamilton Public Library (HPL).

She will divide her time equally between McMaster and HPL, consulting one-on-one with apprentice writers in the Hamilton community, and devoting approximately 60% of her time to her own writing, an important goal of the Residency program.

Christine Pountney will  hold office hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays between September 2016 and April 2017. For the fall, her office hours will be at the Central Branch of the Hamilton Public Library on the third floor, and during the winter she will hold office hours at the Department of English and Cultural Studies at McMaster in Chester New Hall, room 312.

Please join us in welcoming Christine to McMaster:

When: Monday, September 26 2016 at 7pm,

Where: Hamilton Public Library, Central Branch|55 York Boulevard (Hamilton Room, Ground Floor)
