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.

NQ Event: Sharing the Stage

Join us for a conversation between some of the characters behind the initiatives, including Andy Jones, Greg Malone, Pam Hall, Melissa Barbeau, and Ian Sutherland as they discuss community university collaboration in the arts, today, yesterday, and into the future.

BINGO

BY Jenina MacGillivray

Troy Gallant had curly chestnut hair, and he was tall. By far, he was the cutest and nicest boy in the neighborhood. He would never try to put the moves on you at the Laundromat while you were folding your underwear, for example.

Joey the Carver

BY Renee Fancey

Joey sits in soft focus. Behind him, blue skies and bright murals paint a backdrop easily mistaken as exotic. Festival flags rally. Paving stones undulate drunkenly up the lane. Streetlamps, tagged out to the sun, sleep off their graveyard shifts. A canopy of shadows waves like a palm tree.
