Mark Nowak Reading Tonight

Eminent Writer in Residence Mark Nowak will read from his work tonight at 7 p.m. at Second Story Books. This event is hosted by the MFA in Creative Writing Program and is free and open to the public. A book signing and reception will follow the reading. Hope to see you there!

 

 

 

Nowak’s writings include the New York Times “Editor’s Choice” for “Shut Up Shut Down” and the acclaimed book about coal mining disasters in the United States and China, “Coal Mountain Elementary.”

He is among a dozen poets to be included in the seminal anthology “American Poets in the 21st Century: The New Poetics.” Poet Adrienne Rich heralds Nowak for “regenerating the rich tradition of working-class literature.”

Nowak is the director of the graduate creative writing program at Manhattanville College in Purchase, N.Y.
