Jun 17, 2019
15 South Dubuque Street, Iowa City, IA 52240
Writers’ Workshop graduate Lucy Ives will read from Loudermilk. "Ives' satirical masterpiece follows poet Troy Augustus Loudermilk, a shallow Adonis recently admitted to the nation’s premiere creative-writing graduate program, located in the heart of America’s starchy middle . . . Laugh-out-loud funny and rife with keen cultural observations, Ives’ tale is a gloriously satisfying critique of education and creativity." ––Booklist (starred review)
