Reception and Reading with Naben Ruthnum

March 28, 2022 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for a reception and public reading with the 2022 Writer in Residence, Naben Ruthnum, at the FINA Gallery.

The goal of UBCO’s Writer in Residence program is to promote Canadian authors and literature to Okanagan residents, and also provide budding writers the opportunity to receive feedback on their creative work. Read more about Ruthnum’s residency in Kelowna.

Drinks and snacks will be available throughout the reception, and the reading will be followed by a Q&A session.

Note: On-campus events will require masks and proof of vaccination.
