Reading: May Day at UCI: poetry and prose

May Day Literary Event

UC-AFT Local 2226 Invites All to a Reading and Publication Party Mixer for Two Recently Published Lecturers

The union which represents Librarians and Lecturers takes time away from its busy work of defending collective bargaining to celebrate new creative work from two of our favorite members. Congratulations to English (Composition) Lecturers Lorene Delany-Ullman and Peggy Hesketh on publication of their respective books, a novel and a collection of prose poems. Each will read from and sign copies of their books (for sale) at this informal mixer organized to share with the university community our pride in their successes.

Purchase a book. Bring a friend. Celebrate (literary) solidarity with other Lecturers, Librarians and fans of these two terrific writer-teachers.

Reviews below. Wow!

"Telling the Bees is a marvel. With infinite compassion and perfect pitch, Peggy Hesketh has written an American classic: the inadvertent examination of a life unlived, told by the 80-year-old beekeeper who didn't live it. It's a wonderful read for anyone who loves a great and unforgettable story told well.." - Elizabeth George

“Utterly unlike any book of poetry or prose poetry you’ll read in this or any other year, Camouflage for the Neighborhood has the sharp beauty of a hand-made Clovis-point flint tool, and cuts as deeply into one of the central issues of our age: the home-made, always personal violence we do to one another on this earth, and the interconnection of lives in which it takes place.” - Jane Hirshfield
