This Friday, November 18, 2011, two Wilkes Poetry MFA grads will be featured readers at the Doylestown Bookshop in downtown Doylestown, PA.
Dawn Leas (MFA, 2009) developed her thesis about the places she lived as a child. The result was a thesis, I Know When to Keep Quiet, about moving around the country, landing in Pennsylvania, and the struggle to fit in and find a place to call home. A portion of the thesis was recently released as a chapbook titled I Know When to Keep Quiet by Finishing Line Press.
Brian Fanelli (MFA, 2010) has published poetry in a variety of national journals and websites, including Young American Poets, Word Riot, Pennsylvania Literary Journal, Boston Literary Magazine, San Pedro River Review, Yes Poetry, WritingRaw.com, Chiron Review, My Favorite Bullet, and several others. His work has also appeared in the anthology Ripasso, which also features the work of former Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky. Brian’s latest book of poems, Front Man, was published by Big Table Publishing Company.
The Doylestown Bookshop is a locally owned and operated bookstore dedicated to preserving the heritage and traditions of independent bookstore ideals. Dawn and Brian will be reading from their most recent works.
