The Writing Program is hosting a couple of keen events this week, so don’t miss out.
Tonight, Laura Cronk will be moderating a discussion with Catherine Bowman. They will be talking about Catherine’s new book, The Plath Cabinet. This is a must for Plath devotees. Bowman is also the editor of Word of Mouth, an anthology of poems by poets she has reviewed and featured on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. Her poems have appeared in six editions of Best American Poetry.
On Wednesday, Greil Marcus is hosting a Riggio Forum with David Thomas, the lead singer and founder of the legendary avant-rock band Pere Ubu. Pere Ubu were an innovative force during the rise of punk/new-wave in the late seventies and early eighties.
Remember, these events are free for students and faculty, so be sure to check them out.
