Award-winning poet, novelist to present at PSU

This year’s Distinguished Visiting Writers Series at Pittsburg State University is set to kick off later this month with a reading from an award-winning poet and novelist.

Deena Linett, author of “Woman Crossing a Field” and “Rare Earths,” will read from her work at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 25, in the Balkans Room of Overman Student Center. A reception will follow in the Heritage Room.

Linett’s work has been nominated for Pushcart Prizes, and has appeared in The Southern Review, Smartish Pace, Two Rivers Review, Kestrel, and Rattapallax. She is Professor Emerita of English at Montclair State University in Montclair, N.J.

The reading, which is sponsored by the Student Fee Council and the Distinguished Visiting Writers Series, is free and open to the public.
