Poet Nin Andrews will give the next presentation in the Creative Writer’s Speaker Series at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College. She will read from her works at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 30, in the Larry and Kathryn Smith Chapel. An author reception will be held in the chapel’s first-floor meeting room one-half hour prior to the reading; both events are free and open to the public.

Andrews is the recipient of two Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist grants and the author of "The Book of Orgasms," "Why They Grow Wings," which won the Gerald Cable Award, "Spontaneous Breasts," winner of the Pearl Chapbook Contest, "Midlife Crisis with Dick and Jane," "Sleeping with Houdini," and her most recent collection of poems, "Southern Comfort." She edited "Someone Wants to Steal My Name," a collection of translations of the French poet Henri Michaux.

Andrews’ poems appeared in "The Best American Poetry," in 1997, 2001 and 2003.

Penn State Behrend’s annual Creative Writer’s Speaker Series is produced by the college’s bachelor of fine arts in creative writing degree program with support from the Clarence A. and Eugenie Baumann Smith Fund. The series also will host literary nonfiction writer Steven Rinella on Thursday, Oct.14.
