Canadian Writing Comes to You -- Live!

The Reading Series has been bringing cutting-edge Canadian writers to St. Jerome's University since 1984.

Each year we strive to offer a range in our slate of visiting writers: well-established and up-and-coming, from the local area and from sea to sea, working in verse and prose and beyond. Experimental and traditional, serious and playful, beautiful and stark, cynical and celebratory -- come and sample the wealth and variety that is Canadian literature today.

These readings are special opportunities to get inside the book -- to hear writers read their own words, and speak about their own writing. Every reading includes an open question and answer session.

All readings are free and open to the public.

St. Jerome's is located at 290 Westmount Road North, Waterloo, Ontario.

From its beginnings through 2018-19, the Reading Series has been funded by the Canada Council for the Arts and St. Jerome's University. It now continues to be funded by St. Jerome's.

2022-23 Series: Coming Back/Home

 Hello everyone -- it's good to be back!

After a two-year hiatus we're pleased to be cooking up a great series of events for this year. Plans are still in progress, but we can say for sure that, as part of our Coming Back/Home theme, our own wonderful Claire Tacon will be reading for us in Winter term. 

And this Fall term Manahil Bandukwala will be reading for us on 21 October at 4:30! Details to come. We're thrilled to be helping her celebrate the publication of her debut poetry collection, Monument, from Brick Books

Hope to see you soon!
