BYU English Department hosts reading series in November

The English Department Reading Series at Brigham Young University will sponsor three more readings for November in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium Fridays at noon.

The series allows recently published authors to share their work in an informal setting. The series also provides opportunities for students to interact with authors and talk about their work.

The scheduled readings include:

  • Nov. 7--Mary Jo Bang, assistant professor of English at Washington University in St. Louis. Her book "Apology for Want" was the winner of the Bakeless Prize in 1996. She also won the Poetry Society's Alice Fay di Castagnola Award for "Louise in Love." She is poetry co-editor at the Boston Review.

  • Nov. 14--Donald Revell, professor of English and creative writing at the University of Utah. His most recent collection of poems is "There are Three," published in 1998. His other books include "Beautiful Shirt," "Erasures," "New Dark Ages" and "The Gaza of Winter." He has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Ingram Merrill Foundation and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.

  • Nov. 21--BYU graduate students. A short reception with light refreshments will follow each reading. For more information about the reading series, contact Liz Liljenquist by e-mail at el39@email.byu.edu.
