On Wednesday, March 4th, Lily Hoang will be giving a reading from her new novel, Changing, which I reviewed in my last post. The reading is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the Hammes Bookstore on the University of Notre Dame campus. The book is very good and Lily is a wonderful reader, so this certainly isn’t one to miss. You find information on all of Notre Dame’s upcoming Creative Writing events here.
On Thursday, March 5th, the immensely talented poet Ashley Capps will be reading, I believe, from her book Mistaking the Sea for Green Fields. The reading is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the 3rd-floor “Bridge” of Wiekamp Hall on the campus of IU South Bend. A book signing and reception are to follow. I can honestly say this is one of the better books of poetry I’ve read recently, and couldn’t be more excited to have Ashley come for the reading.
Afterward, a more informal group ‘thing’ shall be had as all are welcome to follow to The Oaken Bucket, a very short distance from the IU South Bend campus. Be sure to keep your eye on the IU South Bend Creative Writing blog for further details and future announcements.
Both readings are free and open to the public.
Also, if anyone is interested I’ve got a couple people interested in going to see Slumdog Millionaire at the Debartolo Performing Arts Center on the Notre Dame campus on Saturday. They have showings at 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. If you’re interested leave me a comment or an e-mail — anyone is welcome to join us. I believe tickets are only $3 for all students. The Debartolo website has a ton of information on other events going on right now.
If I manage to finish reading Watchmen by Saturday then I’ll probably try and go see that well; again, if you’re interesting in coming along, let me know!
