Stellar Alumni Reading Series: Irena Praitis and Bojan Louis

Banner for alumni event featuring Bojan Louis and Irena Praetis

ASU's Creative Writing Program presents its brightest, most talented alumni writers in this new series. In this installment, Irena Praitis (MFA 1999; PhD 2001) and Bojan Louis (MFA 2009) read from their work. A reception and book signing will follow.

Based on eye-witness accounts, Irena Praitis's The Last Stone in the Circle chronicles experiences of prisoners in a WWII German work re-education camp. Delving into the murkiness of human experience in the face of suffering, the poems consider the complicated choices people make in impossibly difficult circumstances and explore the sheer resilience of survival.

Currents, by Diné writer Bojan Louis, encompasses the kinetic dissonance of the contemporary struggle to coexist with self-inflicted eroding environments.

This event is free of charge and open to the public.
