The Graduate Writers Forum is committed to showcasing some of the best contemporary American poetry and prose. The Little Grassy Literary Festival has proven to be a source of inspiration for attendees from a wide range of backgrounds, with the readings transforming literary works on the page into memorable experiences in person, while allowing direct access to the writers.  This year, our choices bring a diversity of voices, experiences and aesthetics. Little Grassy will feature poets Carl Phillips, Brian Barker, Aja Monet, David Winter, Abby Geni and Bonnie Jo Campbell.

Stardust Chicken
Written and directed by Craig Gingrich-Philbrook                                                                   Kleinau Theater, 2nd Floor Communications Building                                            Reservations & Information (618) 453-5618

Join a troupe of performers, far in the future, away from Earth, as they prepare a decidedly surreal show for the annual commemoration of the now extinct chicken. One of the most abused species in human history—particularly, but not exclusively in factory farms, the chicken becomes a case study in domestication, anthrocentrism, empire building, and the ways a space-roaming culture must reflect on the values it brings along as it heads out among the stars. MATURE THEMES.
