Writers Series Caps Off Fifth Season

This past spring, the NU Writers Series wrapped up its fifth season with readings by an environmental poet and a best-selling sci-fi writer.

The March reader was Karen Fowler, the author of six novels and three short-story collections. Her book The Jane Austen Book Club was on the New York Times best-seller list for thirteen weeks straight and was listed as a New York Times notable book.

In April, environmental writer Todd Davis made the trip from his home in rural central Pennsylvania to share selections from his five full-length poetry collections. He read from In the Kingdom of the Ditch, which according to the Los Angeles Review holds “quiet wisdom, not unlike the solemnity and silence of personal prayer.”
