Book lovers, rejoice! Starting this coming Saturday, November 12, Spalding University’s Festival of Contemporary Writing will celebrate its tenth year with a weeklong program featuring fiction, poetry, nonfiction and screenwriting readings by faculty, guests and alumni of Spalding University’s brief-residency Master of Fine Arts in Writing program. An opening reception at 3:30 on Sunday will include a reading and cake cutting.
Events will take place at Spalding’s Egan Leadership Center Lectorium at the corner of Fourth and Breckinridge streets, and at the Brown Hotel, 335 W. Broadway. All readings are free, ticketless and open to the public, and there is plenty of free parking available for the campus readings.
The festival runs through November 18.
