Chicago writer, art director and curator Fred Sasaki will read from his manuscript of "non-consensual collaborative emails" during an upcoming presentation at Coe College. The event will be held on Thursday, March 13, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in Kesler Lecture Hall in Hickok Hall. It is open to the public at no charge.

Along with the reading, Sasaki will participate with Coe Assistant Professor of English Nick Twemlow in a conversation about the publishing industry, literary event planning, satire, funeral homes, how to get an internship in an overcrowded world, and other interesting topics. Newcity Lit has named Sasaki as one of the 50 most influential people in Chicago's literary scene. He serves as the art director for Poetry magazine and as a gallery curator for the Poetry Foundation.

This presentation is part of the Coe College English Department's Creative Writing Reading Series. For more information, call 399-8581.
