Holiday Big Tent Reading: Tom Averill, Alyse Bensel, and Priscilla Howe
Alyse Bensel's poems have most recently appeared or are forthcoming in The Adroit Journal, Zone 3, burntdistrict, Heron Tree, Bone Bouquet, and elsewhere. She is the author of the poetry chapbooks Not of Their Own Making (dancing girl press, 2014) and Shift (Plan B Press) and serves as the Book Reviews Editor at The Los Angeles Review, a literary journal from Red Hen Press. A PhD candidate in creative writing at the University of Kansas, she lives in Lawrence.
Priscilla Howe delivers funny, smart storytelling shows, tailored to the group. Young children (age 3+) get stories, songs and puppet hilarity, while older kids and adults (really!) get more sophisticated (and still funny) fare. Priscilla travels the region, the country and abroad (8 foreign countries and counting) with a headful of stories and a bagful of puppets.
