Three Cheers for our MFA Readers!

Last Friday we had our first MFA Student Reading, and it was a smashing success — with rollicking poetry by Ginger Ko (I swear: it rollicked!), sensual prose by Kelly Hatton (there were devil-monsters!) and mega-wild nonfiction by Sofi Thanhauser (we all left wanting more!). What a good time we had!

To make you jealous for not being there and/or to help you remember how fun it was, here are some exclusive photos hot-off-the-press.

Special thanks to American studies second-year Julian Saporiti for putting together an amazing mini-concert’s worth of music (and thanks as well as to his guest artists!) and to Mr. Lam Pham, second-year fiction MFA kingpin, and our reading series planner, laborer and all-around doing-everything-necesary-er for doing everything necessary. Thanks, all!

And now, a few thousand words worth of photos:
