On Sunday, September 25, 2016, Kate Azu (winner of the 2015 Big Prize Poetry Slam) and Morgan Zepp (winner of the 2016 Braly Award in Nonfiction) will represent UMBC at the Baltimore Book Festival. They will be reading at the University Writers Event, sponsored by the Ivy Bookshop, along with undergraduates and graduates from John Hopkins University, Goucher College, the University of Baltimore, Loyola University Maryland, Morgan State University, Coppin State University, and more.
The event begins at 1:00 and ends at 4:00 PM at the Ivy Bookshop Stage. There will be two "sets," and Kate and Morgan are scheduled to read at the end of each set. Artifact Coffee will be sponsoring this exciting event.
For those who have not been to the Baltimore Book Festival before, it is both inspiring and inclusive, and it restores one's faith, as so many interested readers attend. We look forward to seeing you there and to supporting our UMBC writers as their share their literary gifts.
