Tonight, Professor Mark Neely (also Director of Creative Writing) will be reading from his chapbook Four of a Kind in Bracken Library, room 104, at 7:30 p.m. Neely’s chapbook was named Winner of the 2009 Concrete Wolf Chapbook Competition.  The reading will be opened by guest student reader Jeremy Bauer, who was chosen from among a number of anonymous entrants. In the same fashion as the Bloof Books reading, undergraduate students submitted their work anonymously for a chance to open the reading, with the main-event writer/writers choosing the winner.

Adding another scoop to this sundae of a night, there is a student-organized reading tonight as well, starting at 9:30 p.m. at Be Here Now in the Village. If you are under 21 there is a $1 cover charge at the door. So, BSU, I hope you’ll take the opportunity to see what your professors are writing as well as your peers. It’s a good night for English lovers, so reward yourself and embrace it.
