Happy New Year!

The Castalia reading series is ringing in the new year with more great poetry and prose on Tuesday January 3rd! Kicking off the January event are first year prose writers Kristine Greive and Matt Perez. Our second year reader is famed pie-poet Kate Lebo. Be sure to bring cash & an appetite because she'll be selling slices of her scrumptious pies tomorrow night, too! For our alum reader this month, we are happy to present poet Matthew Nienow, who has published three chapbooks, including The Folded Map, which came out in 2011. He has received awards from such places as the National Endowment for the Arts, the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, and the Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Memorial Foundation. For our featured faculty reader, we are fortunate to have Professor and Director of the Creative Writing Program: Pimone Triplett. She has published three books of poetry: Rumor in 2009, The Price of Light in 2005, and Ruining the Picture in 1998. She has received the Levis Poetry Prize and the Hazel Hall Poetry Prize, and has also co-edited the collection of essays Poet's Work, Poet's Play.

We look forward to seeing you there!
