The Writers’ Federation of New Brunswick (WFNB) and the Canada Council for the Arts are pleased to announce that PEI novelist, poet, and playwright J.J. Steinfeld will be reading at the La Teraz Gallery on 154 Church Street, in Moncton.

The reading will take place at 8 pm, at the front of the gallery. J.J. will be driving over that long expanse of raised concrete just to be with us, so please come out and hear this wonderfully entertaining writer, and in the meantime get the chance to hang out with a great gang of writers and admirers of writers in a beautiful gallery.
