Oyez Review Issue 42 Release Reading this Friday

On Friday, March 20th, Oyez Review, the literary magazine of the Creative Writing Program at Roosevelt University, will release their newest issue with a reading at Quimby's Bookstore, 1854 W. North Ave, 7pm.

Among the readers for the night will be poet Donna Vorreyer who will read a selection that is featured in this issue. Vorreyer is the author of A House of Many Windows (Sundress Publications, 2013) as well as six chapbooks. Her most recent work Encantado (forthcoming from Redbird Chapbook this April) is a collaboration with artist Matt Kish (who's illustrated work can be found in Desert Places released on Chicago press Curbside Splendor).

The event is free and open to the public. The new issue of Oyez will be on sale and back issues are stocked at Quimby's.
