Goose Lane Editions is turning 60. To celebrate this historic milestone and to launch its fall season, Canada’s oldest independent publisher is throwing a gala celebration in Fredericton featuring the following special guests:

Nancy Bauer, prominent Maritime arts columnist and author of Flora, Write this Down, the first book released under the Goose Lane Editions imprint;

Herménégilde Chiasson, former Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick and celebrated artist, filmmaker, and poet;

award-winning Canadian author Beth Powning, whose beloved book Home: Chronicle of a North Country Life is being re-released in a new edition;

and Don McKay, Canada’s most celebrated poet, whose new volume, Angular Unconformity: Collected Poems, 1970-2014, is without doubt one of the most anticipated books of the season.

The event will be hosted by Goose Lane Editions publisher Susanne Alexander and creative director Julie Scriver with contributions by Dr. George A. MacLean of the University of New Brunswick.


This event is free and open to the public.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
