Lebanon Valley College will host three Press 53 writers on Thursday, Sept. 26 as part of the Agnes O’Donnell Poets and Writers Series. Poet Terri Kirby Erickson, fiction writer Curtis Smith, and editor/publisher Kevin Morgan Watson will hold a student workshop from 2:30-4:30 p.m. and a reading and book-signing event at 7 p.m. Both events will be held in Leedy Theater. The evening session is free and open to the public.

Watson, who serves as Editor-in-Chief of Press 53, specializes in short stories and poetry. As a publisher, he has worked with both first-time published authors and winners of the National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize. As a writer, his short stories, poetry, and essays have appeared in numerous publications including the 2002 TallGrass Writers/ Outrider Press anthology, “Take Two—They’re Small.” His essay, “Sunny Side Up,” won first prize in this publication.

During the evening session, Erickson will read selections from her poetry collections “In the Palms of Angels,” and “Telling Tales of Dusk,” the winner of a Nautilus Silver Award for Poetry and the Gold Medal for Poetry in the Next Generation Indie Book Award.
Smith, whose stories have appeared in more than 70 literary journals, will read from “Beasts & Men.” His work has been cited by “The Best American Short Stories,” “The Best American Mystery Stories,” and “The Best American Spiritual Writing.”

Sponsored by the Green Blotter Literary Society of Lebanon Valley College, the Agnes O’Donnell Poets and Writers Series brings authors to campus for readings, writing workshops, and other events. The series is funded by a gift from Agnes O’Donnell, professor emerita of English who remained active in the department after her retirement in 1987 until her death in 2008.
