Words Hurled About Foster's

"New Lit Out Loud" celebrated Halloween early with a fantastic reading at Foster's Martini Bar on October 28. Nearly twenty readers and performers offered a range of original works from spoken word to dramatic interpretation for a packed house.

Readers included a blend of current and future students, alumni, and community members. Four writers, two of them area high school students, joined the writing community by reading publicly for the first time.

Spoken word artists Phil Smith and Grant Williams recited their works entirely from memory, as did community regular, octogenerian Don Sollars. Faculty sponsors Meg Thompson, Dana Andrews, and Bill Church shared new works as well. The final "New Lit Out Loud" of the semester is planned for Wednesday, December 2.
