Free and open to the public, the readings take place each evening 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 (June 16, 22).
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.
EVENING READING SCHEDULE – 7:30 p.m.
Fri., June 15 - Bonnie Jo Campbell, Kwame Dawes & Jack Driscoll

The authors in the series also teach at the residency, where MFA students participate in workshops, lectures, classes and other events in preparation for the correspondence semester that follows.
Students leave the residency paired with a professional writer who responds to their reading and writing throughout the semester, encouraging and inspiring emerging craft and voice.
