Writers on Writing Series Featuring Author Chrissy Kolaya
Mon, March 27, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM CDT
Join us for an evening with poet and fiction writer, Chrissy Kolaya. She was recognized by Booklist for adeptly building “a magnetizing, deeply perceptive tale of the clash between outsiders and insiders, personal obsession and family, tradition and change, dream and delusion” in her debut novel Charmed Particles. Her work has been included in the anthologies New Sudden Fiction (Norton), Fiction on a Stick (Milkweed Editions), and Stone, River, Sky: An Anthology of Georgia Poems, as well as in a number of literary journals.
Kolaya has received a Norman Mailer Writers Colony summer scholarship, an Anderson Center for Interdisciplinary Studies fellowship, a Loft Mentor Series Award in Poetry, and grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board, the Lake Region Arts Council, and the University of Minnesota. She teaches writing at the University of Minnesota Morris, where she’s one of the co-founders of the Prairie Gate Literary Festival.
The event will be held in the North Dining Room located in Bergstrom Hall (Building #6, Parking Lot B). Refer to Mount Mary University's campus map).
Event is free and open to the public. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today!
