Great River Reading Series -

The Winona State University English Department's Great River Reading Series (GRRS) spring 2021 is now online. "The John S. Lucas Great River Reading Series brings poets, fiction writers and non-fiction writers to WSU each year. The writers visit creative writing and literature classes, meet with students, and give a public reading." - WSU English Department

The GRRS spring 2021 series starts by showcasing Delta Eddy, who is retiring from WSU this spring. She will continue to be with us in digital form reading her poetry. Then listen to Jennifer (Jennie) Case, one of WSU’s Alum who is a wonderful example of what WSU English majors become. Finish this year’s series with Kimberly Blaeser, who is from UW-Milwaukee and the Institution of American Indian Arts. She reads from her book of poems, Copper Yearning, as well as some of her new work.
