This reading was held at Alumni Hall on the downtown campus of Western Ct State U, and was sponsored by its MFA professional writing program.
There were 2 features – Elisabeth Cohen and Antonia Schachter who read their poetry after a 45 minute open mic. Last year this event met at Molten and there were not enough seats. Alumni Hall is larger and easily accommodated the large crowd. Beer and wine were among the refreshments provided by the college.
The event was part of the University;s Summer Literary Festival which runs Jul. 29 – Aug. 3 and was presented by WestConn;s Master of Fine Arts in Professional Writing program
