As part of the College of Letters and Sciences "Creative Imperatives" symposium, the English Department is hosting an evening at the Root Note. Monday night, 2/29, from 7:00 - 9:00 PM (115 4th Street, La Crosse).
Leading off at 7:00 will be student contributors to The Catalyst reading works from the latest issue.
At 8:00, we're excited to welcome Wisconsin Naturalist and author Jill Sisson Quinn. Jill's essays have appeared in Ecotone, Orion, and OnEarth. Her essay "Sign Here if You Exist" was selected for The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2011. You may have heard her on Public Radio's Wisconsin Life, where she is a regular guest contributor. Jill will read recent work, including selections from her memoir Deranged: Finding a Sense of Place in the Landscape and in the Lifespan.
Please consider coming out in support of literature and creative writing at UW-L! We'll hope to see you there!
