A reading by contributors to the “Nasty Women Poets” anthology is 7 p.m. Oct. 30 in the Bailey Library in Andrews Hall.
The book, co-edited by Grace Bauer, professor of English, features poems by women who proudly celebrate their own nastiness and that of other women who have served as their role models. The poems are about women defying limitations, refusing to be “nice girls,” and who want to encourage little girls to keep dreaming.
The reading will include seven contributors to the anthology. They include Bauer, Twyla Hansen, Christine Stewart Nunez, Kimberly Tedrow, Hope Wabuke, Stacey Waite and Laura Madeline Wiseman.
The event is free and open to the public.
