Mike Begnal will discuss poetry, and Peter Tractenberg, creative nonfiction, at the upcoming session.
Sponsored by the Department of English, the series will feature established writers presenting their work alongside the work of Duquesne students and other emerging writers. All readings are free and open to the public.
