Writers Harvest

Date(s) - September 15, 2015
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Three writers with ties to the Athens community will read from their work at a benefit on the campus of Ohio University.

Part of the national Writers Harvest reading series, the event will take place in the Walter Hall Rotunda on Tuesday, September 15, at 7:30 p.m. A suggested $5 donation for admission will support hunger relief.

This year’s lineup features writer/photographer Laura Larson, fiction writer James Miranda, and poet Jeff Tigchelaar.

Tigchelaar’s first book, Certain Streets at an Uncertain Hour, was published earlier this year. A former newspaper reporter, he has had his poetry appear in journals such as North American Review, Pleiades, and The Laurel Review.

Currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of English Language & Literature at Ohio University, Miranda has written for Cimarron Review, Noo Journal, Alaska Quarterly Review, Third Coast Magazine, and elsewhere. Larson, Associate Professor of Photography and Integrated Media in the School of Art + Design, recently completed Hidden Mother, a book that examines a widespread but little-known practice in 19th-century portrait photography of the same name.

Hosted by Ohio University’s Program in Creative Writing, the event is part of the nation’s largest reading series working to help fight hunger. Proceeds from the event will go toward Hocking Athens Perry Community Action (HAPCAP) and the Southeastern Ohio Food Bank.
