BYU English Department lists Reading Series authors

The English Department Reading Series is sponsoring bi-weekly readings in the Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium Fridays at noon on the Brigham Young University campus.

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.

Six readings are scheduled for the rest of September and October. The participants are:

- Oct. 3, Kristen Randle, a BYU graduate and former English teacher. Randle has published three young adult novels. Her honors include the American Library Association Best Books list, the Michigan Library Association's Best Book of the Year for 1996 and Booklist Top Ten Pick of the Year.

- Oct. 10, humorous readings

- Oct. 17, Richard Dutcher, filmmaker and author.

- Oct. 24, Gina Clark, a part-time instructor at BYU, and Scott Hatch. Clark has published poetry in multiple reviews, as well as BYU Studies. She received an honorable mention in the "Atlantic Monthly Poetry Competition" and second place in the Utah Arts Council Poetry Contest. Hatch has published in "Prairie Schooner," BYU Studies and "Dialogue." His collection "Mapping Desert" received first prize in the 2002 Utah Arts Council Poetry Competition and placed second in the last two Utah Arts Council book-length poetry competitions.

- Tuesday, Oct. 28, Ron Carlson, professor of English at Arizona State University. He is the author of five books of fiction and two novels. His work has been published in prestigious journals and anthologies, including "The Norton Anthology of Short Fiction." Carlson has been awarded a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Fiction and hosts "Books and Company" on KAET Public Television in Arizona.

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.
