On October 19th, the Greenspring Review collaborated with the English Department and had two Visiting Writers, Jane Lewty and Jacquelin Gorman, read selections from their published works.

 

Jane Lewty read from her book, In One Form To Find Another, in which she had written poems based on how the body experiences different ailments. Lewty explained that she was inspired by case studies of different ailments.

Fellow SU English Major, Marcus Tucker, introduced Jacquelin Gorman by talking about his experience having Gorman as a Professor for his writing class, and he had nothing but praise for her, saying that Gorman made it an enjoyable experience, as well as being an inspiration.

Jacquelin Gorman read a passage from her book, The Viewing Room, which is based on Gorman’s experiences with death as a chaplain at different hospitals. 

The evening ended with a Q&A session, where English Majors asked Lewty and Gorman any questions ranging from their writing process to what books they were currently reading.
