Reminders: Two Thursday evening events with our faculty!

Two essential reminders for your calendars:

1. This Thursday, September 23, please join us in Trimble Forum, where Professor Laurie Frankel will be featured at our informal coffeehouse event. Rumor has it she will be leading a conversation about the publication of her novel, The Atlas of Love, in light of recent media attention on the perhaps unconscious biases toward male authors. Bring your questions and comments, buy a copy of her book and have it signed, nibble a brownie or two. 5:30-7 p.m.

2. The following Thursday, September 30, at 7 p.m., Professor Bill Kupinse will read his work at
Gig Harbor Library (4423 Point Fosdick Dr NW, Gig Harbor, 253-851-3793) as part of the Peninsula Library Poetry Series. Professor Kupinse says, “I’ll be reading older poems from my book Fallow, but also sharing some new work from an in-process verse reinterpretation of The Tower Treasure, the first book in the Hardy Boys series. As anyone who has read the 1927 adventure book knows, The Tower Treasure really is a poem trapped in novel form; my goal is to let it out. Yes, I have my fingers crossed that I’ll attract an eventual lawsuit from Hardy Boys publishers Grosset and Dunlap, now a subsidiary of Pearson; it’s always nice to be noticed.”

Looking ahead, Professor Julie Christoph will be featured at the next “Coffeehouse” Conversation: Monday, October 7, 2010. We’ll keep you updated.
