You’re Invited: Cocoa with the Quarterly

BY NQ

December 2017

We’re having a party!

The Newfoundland Quarterly would like to invite you and yours to an extra-cozy event in the dining area of Rocket Bakery on Wednesday December 13th from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM.

Cocoa at the Quarterly will be a laid-back family-friendly event. We’ll share some stories from our Canada 150 themed special print edition and our new website NQonline.ca, eat cookies, drink hot chocolate, and enjoy holiday music courtesy of St. John’s favorites, Joanna Barker and High and Lonesome. Readers include Emily Deming, Matthew Hollet, and Katie Vautour.

Admission is free.

This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.

The story of a photograph

BY Naomi Niyukuli

“It reminds me of many nights I slept in the forests and I was waiting to die. We had houses, beds, and sheets, but we were unable to have them around us. My family and I had to sleep outside in any weather. In the storm rain, cold, and wind without blankets.”
