Please join us at the annual general meeting of the UNB Associated Alumnae on Thursday, June 9 from 6 – 8 p.m. The meeting will be held in the President’s Room of the Alumni Memorial Building on the UNB Fredericton campus. We will be welcoming two-time UNB graduateWendy McLeod-MacKnight (BA’85, MA’89) as guest speaker.

Wendy McLeod MacKnight grew up in St. Stephen, New Brunswick with a library card as her prized possession. She completed her BA in Sociology in 1985 and her MA in Sociology in 1989. Over the course of her professional life, she’s taught Sociology at UNB and worked for the Government of New Brunswick, ending her public service career as Deputy Minister of the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. One day she woke up and decided it was time to pursue her life-long dream of writing books for children. Her debut novel, It’s a Mystery, Pig Face!, will be published by Sky Pony Press on Feb. 7, 2017. Any resemblance between the main character and the author is purely intentional.

Please join us to reconnect with fellow alumnae and meet new friends! Light refreshments will be served.

Please RSVP by June 2 via our event page, by email or phoning the Alumni Office at (506) 453-4847.

We look forward to seeing you on June 9.

President, UNB Associated Alumnae
