Marylhurst Reading Series – Free Literary Events

Each year, we bring an incredible group of diverse writers and thinkers to Marylhurst University, as part of the Marylhurst Reading Series. Past authors include Darcie Dennigan, Matthew Dickman, Jenny Boully, Dorothea Lasky, Sarah Manguso and Karen Russell. These writers share their love of language and unique insights into contemporary culture. All readings are free.

In 2016-17, we’re excited to announce that the Marylhurst reading series’ curator, Jay Ponteri, will be joined by Marylhurst creative writing alum Jenny M. Chu. Jenny also holds an M.F.A. from the University of San Francisco and is presently program coordinator at Write Around Portland.

This year’s authors and poets include Matt Hart, Darius Kazemi & Stephanie Adams-Santos, Brian Blanchfield, Danielle Deulen & Chloe Caldwell.

The Marylhurst Reading Series, established in 2010 with support from the Thomas Binford Endowment Fund, is hosted by Marylhurst’s English Literature & Writing degree program.

May 11, 3:30 pm – Danielle Deulen & Chloe Caldwell

Prose writers Danielle Deulen and Chloe Caldwell will read from their recent books, The Riots and I’ll Tell You In Person, respectively. Danielle Deulen’s memoir, The Riots, won the AWP Prize in Creative Nonfiction and the GLCA New Writers Award. She currently lives in Salem, Oregon where she teaches creative writing at Willamette University. Chloe Caldwell is also the author of the novella Women and essay collection Legs Get Led Astray. She teaches creative nonfiction writing in New York City and lives in Hudson, New York.
