Events

      Two critically acclaimed writers will bring their talents to Anne Arundel Community College this spring through the 2010-2011 Writers Reading @ AACC series.

      Enjoy a free reading by the writers, audience question-and-answer period, discussion of the creative process and booksignings at these Arnold campus events sponsored by the AACC Cultural Events Committee.

      First up at 2 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24, is Jehanne Dubrow, Ph.D., a poet, author of three poetry collections and an award-winning book “The Hardship Post” (2009). Her most recent collection is “Stateside” (Northwestern University Press 2010). 

      An Eastern shore resident, Dubrow is an assistant professor in creative writing and literature at Washington College and teaches at the Writer’s Center in Bethesda. Her works have appeared in journals such as “The New Republic” and “Poetry” and were featured on National Public Radio’s “Fresh Air” and the Public Broadcasting System News Hours blog “Art Beat.”

      Next, at 2 p.m. March 31, meet Andrew Wingfield, a Virginia fiction and nonfiction prose writer whose works include a 2005 novel, “Hear Him Roar,” an award-winning 2010 short story collection “Right of Way” and place-based personal essays.

      Wingfield is an associate professor in George Mason University's New Century College, where he teaches courses on writing, conservation and sustainability while also directing Mason’s Environmental and Sustainability Studies degree program and co-directing its Sustainability Studies minor.

      Both readings take place in the Humanities Building Room 112. Copies of the authors’ works will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
