Visiting Writers Series to Welcome Paul Bone

September 18, 2014
Kaskaskia College is announcing that the Fall seminar for the Visiting Writers Series will be held on Tuesday, October 7, from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm in the Lifelong Learning Center on campus. The guest writer will be Mr. Paul Bone, who will read from his book of poetry, “Nostalgia for Sacrifice.”

The Visiting Writers Series occurs once in the fall and once in the spring, and it includes a guest writer who will offer a reading of his or her work as well as a question-and-answer session and a book signing. The purpose of the Visiting Writers Series is to offer Kaskaskia College and the surrounding community an opportunity to see, meet, learn from, and interact with published and awarded authors and poets. Such events not only cultivate and encourage the appreciation of reading, writing, and the literary arts, but they also inspire and enrich on the personal level.

From the University of Evansville website: Paul Bone is the author of “Momentary Vision of the Assistant Meteorologist,” which won the 2004 Uccelli Chapbook Prize. His poems, reviews, creative nonfiction, and radio essays have been published in The Cream City Review, The Cimarron Review, The Iron Horse Literary Review, The Evansville Review, Tupelo Press, Catalyst Books, and National Public Radio. Professor Bone earned his BA from Southern Illinois University of Carbondale. After earning his MFA from the University of Arkansas, he taught English in Tokyo, Japan. He currently serves as chair of the Department of Creative Writing at the University of Evansville and is one of the founding editors of Measure: A Review of Formal Poetry.

A question and answer session and book signing will follow the reading. Light refreshments will be served.
