By Jeremy Pataky: YEAH WRITE: Ten years of the Northern Renaissance Reading Series
One more good thing to add to the list: several years’ worth of recorded readings from the series are available for download from the program’s website. It’s got a long but worthwhile URL: Northern Renaissance Arts & Sciences Reading Series. No replacement for the live event, but something those of us who can’t be in two places at once appreciate.

All events from July 9-18, including a 10 Year Anniversary Reception and a reading by Jo Ann Beard on July 15, take place at 8 pm in UAA’s Fine Arts Building Room 150.
