Duquesne Hosts Last Coffee House Reading for the Semester
Duquesne University's last Coffee House Reading Series for the Spring semester will conclude with the final reading on Tuesday, April 16, at 7 p.m. in the Power Center's Barnes & Noble Café.
Keeley Teslik, an undergraduate who won last year's Creative Writing Scholarship, and Jennifer Collins Gorman, a graduate student with a book of poetry in the making, will present their writings.
Sponsored by the Department of English, the monthly readings aim to develop the creative writing and arts community on campus. The series features established writers presenting their work alongside the work of Duquesne students and other emerging writers.
