MFA Launches Second Year with Faculty Reading September 12

MFA faculty reading

We’re kicking off the ninth season of Frequency North with a reading by the pioneers of the MFA program: the professors.

On Thursday, September 12, Hollis Seamon, Kenneth Krauss, Daniel Nester, Barbara Ungar, and Rone Shavers will be kicking off the second year or the MFA program with a reading of their own.

This is sure to be an exciting year for the faculty. Many of the MFA professors have upcoming book releases and projects.

Hollis Seamon’s young adult novel, Somebody Up There Hates You was released on September 3rd, 2013 as one of the inaugural books in Algonquin’s new Young Readers imprint.

Daniel Nester is editor of The Incredible Sestina Anthology, due from Write Bloody Publishing later this year.

Kenneth Krauss’ book, Male Beauty: Postwar Masculinity in Theatre, Film, and Physique Magazines, will be published in the spring of 2014.

Don’t miss this epic faculty reading and hear about their new and upcoming projects.
