“Quiet Woman” event a success

Last night’s Poetry Reading and Book Signing event with Katie Kalisz was a success! Katie shared a variety of poems to an engaged audience of students, faculty, staff, retirees, and community members. Thanks to Maryann Lesert for her introduction of Katie’s career and works, and to Mike Klawitter for creating a display of Katie’s work. We’ll post the streaming video as soon as it is closed-captioned. This event was sponsored by the Library & Learning Commons and the English Department.
