Very exciting event(s) slated

Celebrated Wisconsin poet Brent Goodman will read from his collection The Brother Swimming Beneath Me Saturday March 13, 2010 at 7:00 PM at the North Dakota Museum of Art on the UND campus. The reading and session, sponsored by the Red River Valley Writing Project, will include a question and answer session, and be followed by a book signing and reception at the museum.

In addition to the public reading, Goodman’s appearance will include sessions March 12 and 13 for area teachers and RRVWP teacher consultants. The Red River Valley Writing Project is a local site of the National Writing Project, a nation-wide network of more than 200 sites that provides professional development to improve the teaching of writing and learning across the curriculum from kindergarten through university level.
