From fiction to poetry, from the ghettos of Shanghai during World War II to the homeless underground in contemporary Philadelphia, from Marcel Duchamp conspiracies to rare medical conditions to poems about war reporting and natural disasters: Creative Writing faculty Rachel DeWoskin, Rachel Galvin, Will Boast, and Augustus Rose will read from and discuss their fascinating new books. Moderated by novelist Vu Tran, the panel will also consider the balance between teaching and pursuing creative work and how these two aspects of a writer's career complement and complicate each other.
