The event will be held at7 p.m. in Wallenberg Hall inside Denkmann Hall (3520 7th Ave). Every reading is open to the public and the campus community alike.

It's not every day we get the opportunity to talk to someone whose work will appear in literature textbooks for generations to come.” – said Dr. Kelly Daniels, River Readings coordinator and assistant professor of English.
