Pepperdine Libraries Presents "Poetry in the Stacks"
Pepperdine Libraries will host "Poetry in the Stacks" Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 4 p.m. in the Kresge Reading Room of Payson Library, Malibu.
The event will feature readings by Pepperdine professors John Struloeff and Jeffrey Schultz, as well as award-winning poets Sherman Block and Mary Jane Roberts.
Struloeff directs the creative writing program at Pepperdine. His fiction and poetry has appeared recently in The Atlantic Monthly, PN Review, The Southern Review, ZYZZYVA, Prairie Schooner, The Literary Review, Rattle, Open Spaces Magazine, and many other journals and magazines. Struloeff is a former Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford University and 2009 NEA Literature Fellow.
Schultz's poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Great River Review, Northwest Review, Poetry, Poetry Northwest, Willow Springs and elsewhere. He teaches in Pepperdine' Humanities & Teacher Education division. In March, he was one of four winners (out of 900 poets) of the 92nd Street Y "Discovery" Poetry Contest, which since 1951 has recognized the achievements of poets who have not yet published a first book.
