On April 16th our two interns (Crystal and Christina) organized a reading at Oakland University to celebrate the release of Absinthe, issue 7. They read selections from the new issue and students Mary Dunn and Liz Perales read from their own translations. In addition, Professor Fran Meuser talked about her experience working on a translation and Doris Runey read a selection from an interesting translation of a novel adapted as a film script(!).
It was a very good event thanks to all our participants, Annie Gilson, and the work of Crystal and Christina.
