Castalia is back!

Don’t miss the first Castalia of the 2011-2012 year! The October event will feature a number of great readers including UW Professor Maya Sonenberg, whose first collection of stories, Cartographies, won the Drue Heinz Prize. Her second, Voices from the Blue Hotel, was published in 2007, and some of her recent work has appeared in Fairy Tale Review, Web Conjunctions, New Ohio Review, and Hotel Amerika. Also reading will be UW MFA alum Daniel Orozco, who has been published in a bevy of anthologies and journals including Best American Essays, Best American Short Stories, Pushcart Prize anthologies as well as in Harper’s Magazine and McSweeney’s among others. The series will also highlight current MFA candidates, including 2nd year fiction writer Paul Vega, recently returned from the wilds of Alaska, 1st year prose writer Darren Davis and 1st year poet Rich Smith.

WHEN: Monday*, October 17, 8 pm.
WHERE: Richard Hugo House, 1634 Eleventh Avenue

Free and open to the public!

The reading series will once again be held at Hugo House on Capitol Hill, which features a stylish cafe with a good variety of beverages and very good prices.

Books will be available for sale with proceeds going to support the reading series, so bring some cash if you don't want the night to end.

*Note: While this month’s Castalia is on a Monday night, all other Castalia readings will be on the first Tuesday of each month.
