Coffeehouse for student writers, spoken-word poets slated for Sept. 30

Penn State Berks student writers and spoken-word poets will have a chance to showcase their talents during their first coffeehouse of the fall semester on Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Freyberger Gallery. This event is free and the campus community is invited to participate.

Dr. Edwin Murillo, Assistant Professor of Spanish, will be a guest reader. Murillo has taught literature and language at different course levels in both Spanish and English. Primarily a Latin Americanist, his research interests focus on Existentialism, Latin American thought, Modernismo, Vanguardia narratives, and contemporary Latin American cinema. Most of his work focuses on Latin American Existentialism, and his writing aims to reconsider Latin America?s contribution and subordinated position in the Existentialism canon.

This coffeehouse is organized by senior Professional Writing major Melissa Davis as part of her internship.
