On October 25, Glassworks Magazine hosted a reading of their seventeenth issue. With a background of colorful and elaborate textile art, featured authors read not only their published works, but also some personal favorites. “Catfish” John Wojtowicz, who read his poem “Flipping Horshoe Crabs in Fortescue,” thanked his high school poetry teacher, Robert Evans. Coincidentally, Evans is also a member of the Writing Arts Department faculty. Poet Elizabeth Sunflower shared sentimental pieces about raising her daughter. After reading, both authors took part in a thorough and intimate Q&A session. Issue 17 and past issues of Glassworks are available digitally and in print through the magazine’s website.
