Rooney and Sneed Reading this Monday!





This coming Monday, November 28th, Roosevelt's MFA Fall Reading Series proudly welcomes Writer-in-Residence, Kathleen Rooney, and this year's Fiction III/IV Professor, Christine Sneed, for a fabulous Joint Reading! Come at 4:30 for the 3 C's: coffee, cookies, and conversation! At 5:00, the reading begins! After their respective readings, you can even ask them questions! 

Like: Hey, Kathleen Rooney, I heard that you are a founder of Rose Metal Press! How come you are so awesome

Or: Hey, Christine Sneed, I already know that your short story collection, Portraits of a Few of the People I've Made Cried, has won numerous awards. Everyone knows that! But I also heard that your novel, Little Known Facts, was recently acquired by Bloomsbury Press! How come you are so awesome

Or you can get more in depth and ask questions about Kathleen's books of Poetry and Non-fiction, including, but not limited to: Oneiromance, For You, For You I Am Trilling These Songs, Reading with Opera, and Live Nude Girl, which will be sold at the reading, and which she will gladly sign!  

Christine's collection, and winner of the Grace Paley Prize in Short Fiction, Portraits of a Few of the People I've Made Cry, will be sold and signed too!
