Nebraska Wesleyan University’s fall Visiting Writers Series concludes Monday, November 11 with author Kristi Maxwell.

Maxwell received her Ph.D in literature and creative writing from the University of Cincinnati in 2010, and a graduate certificate in women’s, gender, and sexualities studies in 2008. She also earned a M.F.A. in poetry from the University of Arizona, where she served as editor of the Sonora Review. Maxwell is author of Re-, Hush Sessions, and Realm Sixty-four. Her honors include the Greta Wrolstad Scholarship for Young Poets through the Summer Literary Seminars, the Phyllis Smart-Young Prize in Poetry, and the Margaret Sterling Memorial Award.

Her reading and discussion begins at 6 p.m. in Elder Gallery, located in the Rogers Center for Fine Arts, 50th Street and Huntington Ave.

The reading is free and open to the public.

This year’s fall Visiting Writers Series kicked off in September with writer Laura van Berg, whose debut collection, What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us, became a Barnes & Noble “Discover Great New Writers” selection and shortlisted for the Frank O’Connor International Award.

The fall series also included a panel of New Rivers Press Writers.

Details of the spring Visiting Writers Series will be announced soon.
