On Tuesday, April 13, 2010, poet Angie Mlinko will be at Villanova University as a participant in the 12th annual Villanova Literary Festival. Her two books, Matinees and Starred Wire, have been met with much acclaim, the latter receiving the 2004 National Poetry Series award. Her reading will be at 7pm in the Connelly Center and be followed by a reception and book signing.
The first annual Villanova Graduate English Thesis and Field Exam Symposium was a great success thanks to those who took the time to present and attend. Special thanks go out to Ashley Bentivoglio, who helped to organize the event, as well as the six presenters: Becca Burnett, John Keir, Laura Heinrich, Tiffany DeRewal, Ted Howell, and Andy Owens. Thank you to all in attendance for helping to make the event an enjoyable one!
