January Castalia Audio

New year, same fabulous reading series! First year fiction writer Valerie Arvidson kicked off 2011 with a series of short narratives based off of old family photos; first year poet Peter Moench shared with us his love of toasters and Abraham Lincoln; second year fiction writer Ben Wirth showed the audience the ups and downs of the dangerous world of gambling; UW alumna and poet Sierra Nelson invoked Groucho Marx and took the audience on a "choose your own adventure"; and UW creative writing faculty member Maya Sonenberg closed out the evening with two experimental short fiction pieces.
