MFA IN WRITING SPRING READINGS
The Pacific University Master of Fine Arts in Writing program will once again host readings by some of America's finest writers during its 10-day residency on the Forest Grove campus. Free and open to the public, the readings take place each evening at 7:30 beginning Friday, June 15 and continuing through Friday, June 22 in the Taylor-Meade Performing Arts Center (2014 Cedar Street). During that span, a pair of daytime readings will also be open to the public on June 16 and 22 at 1:30pm. The week is a rare opportunity to hear some of the best writers of contemporary American literature read on successive evenings. Featured authors include Bonnie Jo Campbell, who was a finalist for the 2009 National Book Award in Fiction; and poets Kwame Dawes and Joseph Millar, who were both recently awarded 2012 Guggenheim fellowships.
