Faculty Author Reading to feature two poets

Two published poets and faculty members at Pittsburg State University will present a poetry reading at the second annual Faculty Author Reading. Dr. Stephen Meats, chair of the Department of English, will read with Laura Lee Washburn, director of creative writing, at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28, in the Governor’s Room at the Overman Student Center.

Meats is the author of “Looking for the Pale Eagle,” a book of poems centering on birds, wildlife, and the landscape of the Great Plains. Washburn was the winner of the 1996 “Poet Lore” John Williams Andrews Narrative Poetry Contest. She is the author of the poetry collections “Watching the Contortionists,” and “This Good Warm Place: Expanded 10th Anniversary Edition,” and has earned a number of poetry prize nominations and honors for her work.

The reading is free and is co-sponsored by the Distinguished Visiting Writers Series and the Student Fee Council. For more information, contact the Department of English at 620-235-4689.
