In honor of the Second Story Reading Series’ sixth season, the University of St. Thomas hosts eight Second Story authors, who will convene to quake with terror, take a deep breath, and read from their works in progress. Readers include William Alexander, Marina Budhos, Pete Hautman, Jewell Parker Rhodes, Laura Ruby, Anne Ursu, and series organizers Swati Avasthi and Heather Bouwman.
Details: Thursday, April 9th, 7-8:30 pm, in the Thornton Auditorium (room 260) of Terrence Murphy Hall at the University of St. Thomas’s Minneapolis campus—about six blocks (10 minutes’ walk) from the convention center. As always, the reading is free, you can buy books and get them signed, and there will be a reception with the chance to mingle. Start AWP with terrified authors on display, as is fitting.
