The Institute of Island Studies at UPEI is delighted to announce that the annual Island Lecture Series will be hosted online for the upcoming 2020-2021 season.

October’s Island Lecture Series event will take place on Tuesday, October 20 at 7pm, and will feature JoDee Samuelson, author of The Cove Journal, reading from her collection of essays about life on the South Shore of Prince Edward Island. Following her presentation, JoDee will be joined by Bren Simmers (Island Studies Press) in conversation about her inspiration for the book, her writing process, and the art of place-based writing. Audience members will be encouraged to engage with the discussion by submitting questions.

This virtual event is free and everyone is welcome to attend. The event will be hosted on Zoom, and advance registration is required – please visit bit.ly/IslandLectureSeries to reserve your spot.
