A good evening. Part of UAA's Northern Renaissance Arts and Sciences. I'm not sure what all that is about, but this looks a lot like what they used to call - something like the Summer Reading Series. They're creative writing program has an intensive session now and most of the faculty give free readings in the evening.
Richard Chiappone, Linda McCarriston, Zack Rogow[UPDATE July 10 11:30pm - My face is red. After Jacob warned me in the comments to check my facts, I posted this group to be on tonight, but it was three others. They were ok, but I know these three will be better. The UAA website says Chiappone, McCarriston, and Rogow will be Thursday. I can't find a permanently posted schedule and the UAA one changes, I can't go back to see how I messed this up. I thought perhaps I'd taken the Monday program for Tuesday, but no, they are scheduled Thursday. Well, at least you still have a chance to hear them read.]
(Really, these three are good. I wouldn't push this if I didn't think they were good. For the poetry challenged, these three should make an interesting night. You can check out a video on a post of Rogow I did three years ago. And I repeat: it's free, if you don't like it, you can walk out without losing any money. I found an old Linda McCarriston post with video too.)
It's at the UAA Fine Arts Building, Room 150, beginning at 8 p.m. The series runs July 9-17.
[The Arts Building - take Providence east from Lake Otis to the traffic light at the east side of the original Providence hospital building (just past the UAA library on the left) and turn left. Then right at the first street to the right. Then wind around to the Arts building and there's a big parking lot.]
