Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of SDSU’s MFA in Creative Writing!

Please join us on Wednesday, October 30 at 7 pm in Love Library 430 (Leon Williams Room) for the Laurie Okuma Memorial Reading by Karen A. Lee​.

Each semester, thanks to an endowment created by her family and friends, the Laurie Okuma Memorial Reading honors the memory of SDSU alumna, Laurie Matsueda Okuma. Poet, literary critic, and translator, Karen An-hwei Lee, will read from her latest novel, The Maze of Transparencies, as part of the Laurie Okuma Memorial Series. Lee is the author of three poetry collections, a book of literary criticism, and two novels. She is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Grant and currently serves in the administration at Point Loma Nazarene University.

Nevertheless, this morning of zeroization, we wake

            with pixel-dust on our eyelashes—

only a transparent maze, dexterous web of information

moored to clouds

            blossoming

                        with wingless phenomena.

This reading is free and open to the public.
