Sarah Lawrence MFA Alum Poets to Read from Recently Published Tomes

As exciting as Washington, D.C. is, I’m sorry to miss the chance to see Sarah Lawrence College poets read from their recently published books. Four alums of our MFA writing program, Ron Egatz, Rachel Eliza Griffiths, Jee Leong Koh and Jean Hartig, will be reading at Slonim House at SLC on Wednesday, November 3rd at 7:00 PM.

Next best thing to going? Hearing from you how it went! If you are close to Bronxville, N.Y., I hope you will consider attending the reading and sharing your thoughts below.
