Beacon Hill series continues

Speaking of the GU Visiting Writers Series, the series organizer, Tod Marshall, will be among the authors reading on April 20 at Spokane Community College’s Hagen Center for the Humanities.

Marshall, a poet whose most recent collection, “Bugle,” was released by Canarium Books last year, will be joined by the Spokane novelist S.M. Hulse (“Black River,” Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) and Alaska poet Jeremy Pataky, whose debut collection, “Overwinter,” came out this year from the University of Alaska Press.

The three will read as part of the Beacon Hill Reading Series, held this time around in conjunction with Get Lit!. The event will run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The Hagen Center is located in the SCC Library.
