Students To Read From Nonfiction Work May 4

A group of University of Iowa students studying nonfiction writing will hold a reading of a semester's worth of work from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, May 4 at Public Space One, 6 1/2 S. Dubuque St. in Iowa City. The reading is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception.

The students are all undergraduates taking nonfiction writing courses during the spring 2004 semester. Their topics range from memoir to travel writing to science and nature writing.

"We hold this event each semester, and we are regularly humbled, impressed, moved, and entertained," said Bonnie Sunstein, professor of English and education and director of the undergraduate writing program in the English department.
