What's New

Resource Display - May 20 to May 23
For the duration of the conference, the Campus Bookstore of UNB-STU will have an extensive display of books and resources relevant to narrative. This will be located in the foyer outside the Grand Ballroom. Among the works available for purchase will be books by Sharon Butala and other presenters.

Narrative Matters T-Shirts
Be sure to take something of Narrative Matters back home with you! T-shirts with the conference logo on the front and back are available in a variety of colours at the table next to the conference registration office in the foyer outside the Grand Ballroom. The price per T-shirt is $15 (taxes incl).

Butala Book Signing
Keynote speaker, Sharon Butala, will be in the foyer outside the Grand Ballroom to sign copies of her books following her keynote address on Friday evening, May 21. Her books will be available for purchase at the Resource Display. She will also be doing a book reading at the Fredericton Public Library, 12 Carleton Street, at 12 noon on Thursday, May 20.

Breathe, Stretch, and Relax
(Friday and Saturday 10:00-10:30 am and 3:00 - 3:30 pm)
During the breaks, take advantage of a special quiet corner for time out: a self-care opportunity to allow body and mind a brief respite amidst your busy day. Come as you are and enjoy 20 minutes of guided relaxation. Pat Hine, your facilitator, has a practice of Modified Yoga for Special Needs and operates out of a facility in Fredericton called Loka Health Options. She maintains that “success” is measured by how you feel, not how much you can do. May your sampling bring you a hint of this experience. Location: Grand Ballroom D(b). Space : Limited to 20 per session. (Please note that we will honor these times with closed doors.)

Music for the Welcoming Reception and the Banquet is being provided by “Jazz Variations”, featuring David Rehorick on piano, Peter MacDonald on acoustic bass, and Kareem Elhawary on drums.

Closing Reflections - Sunday, May 21, 3:00 - 5:00 pm
A key objective of Narrative Matters is to facilitate an ongoing exchange of ideas, resources, and information. Accordingly, everyone is invited to a special 2-hour session in the Governor’s Ballroom to discuss ways to continue to make this happen.
