Jennifer Case: Argenta Reading Series
July 21, 2018
6:30 pm

BOX WINE courtesy of 107 Liquor at 6:30pm.
READINGS will begin at 7 p.m.
Jennifer Case’s first book, SAWBILL: A SEARCH FOR PLACE, was published by the University of New Mexico Press in March 2018, and her essays have appeared in journals such as Orion, Sycamore Review, Fourth River, North American Review, and Zone 3, among others. She is the recipient of a Bread Loaf Bakeless Scholarship and Stone Canoe‘s 2014 Allen and Nirelle Galson Prize in Fiction. After earning her Master’s Degree in poetry from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, she attended Binghamton University, where her PhD focused on creative nonfiction and place studies. She is now an assistant professor of creative writing at the University of Central Arkansas and the Assistant Nonfiction Editor of A Journal of the Built + Natural Environments.
Our opening reader for the night will be RHETT BRINKLEY, who is a one-time junior athlete and current resident of Little Rock, where he writes about the extraordinary tethers that bind ordinary lives. He proves that while we humans tumble without aim through an unfathomable array of cosmic circumstance, we do so together.

The Argenta Reading Series seeks to connect writers directly with their audience, to appreciate the written word, and understand better the person behind those words. Readings are monthly, in the Argenta United Methodist Church meeting space, and admission is free at all readings unless otherwise noted, though the series is supported by your donations and through a partnership with the William F. Laman Public Library of North Little Rock.
