Richard KatrovasThis Thursday marks the beginning of the Spring 2011 Hugh C. Hyde Living Writers Series, and it’s getting off to a good start by featuring author Richard Katrovas.

Katrovas, an SDSU graduate, is the author of five books of poetry, including Green Dragons, Snug Harbor, The Book of Complaints, and Dithyrambs; a book of short stories, Prague USA; a memoir, The Republic of Burma Shave; and a novel, Mystic Pig. He is also the founding academic director of the Prague Summer Program, which explores creative writing, Jewish studies, Central and East European Studies, and photography. Katrovas teaches at the University of Western Michigan in Kalamazoo.

The reading is scheduled for February 10 at 7 p.m. in Room LL430 of the SDSU Library. As always, it’s open to all with no admission charge. We’d love to see you there!
