U professors read the night away at City Art Meltdown

Students and staff came together Wednesday night to hear and read written works by U faculty members at the City Art Meltdown at the Salt Lake Public Library.

Speakers included English professors Melanie Rae Thon, Jacqueline Osherow, Karen Brennan and assistant English professors Paisley Rekdal, Katharine Coles and Jeff Metcalf.

The Meltdown brought together the “audience favorites” from the City Art readings, which take place weekly at the library.

The library readings give opportunities to newly published writers-many of which are graduate students and faculty at the U-and promote their works, including poetry and novels.
