The Beverly Pritchard Lecture Series Presents Two New Writers to Salem CollegeThe Beverly Pritchard Lecture Series has come around once again. This year, the Center for Women Writers has invited Patricia Spears Jones and Meera Nair to Salem to share their knowledge and work with Salem writers and readers.
Patricia Spears Jones is the author of Painkiller, Femme du Monde, and The Weather That Kills, along with other poetry publications. She is also set to release a new text, A Lucent Fire: New and Selected Poems, in the fall of this year.
Meera Nair has had work appear in NPR (National Public Radio), the Washington Post, and New York Times. Her début collection, Video, has been well received, having earned the Sixth Annual Asian-American Literary Award for Fiction. It was also named one of the Best Books of the Year by the Washington Post.
Both of these writers will be hosting craft talks. Jones will be hosting on March 17 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., and Nair’s will be hosting on March 18 at the same time. To reserve a spot, email the Center for Women Writers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, the authors will be reading from their works in The Saal in Single Sisters House on March 18 at 7:30. This reading will be free and open to the public as are most Center for Women Writers’ events.
