The Jack Ridl Visiting Writers Series of Hope College begins this year with two Hope grads. Katherine Bode-Lang is the author of The Reformation, a recent winner of the 2014 American Review/Honickman First Book Prize. Laura Donnelly published her first book of poetry in 2013, entitled Watershed, which won the 2013 Cider Press Review Editors Prize. The library will have copies of their books available, along with the other visiting writers.
Both women will be available on Thursday, September 18 for a Q&A at 3:30 pm in the Fried-Hemenway Auditorium, Room 135 in Martha Miller. Later at 7:00p, the ninth annual Tom Andrews Memorial Reading will take place in Winants Auditorium, Graves Hall. Read more about them at http://jrvws.org/calendar/katherine-bode-lang-laura-donnelly/
