Dozens were in attendance to see Metropolitan State students showcase their original poetry, short stories, photography, and artwork last month. The Haute Dish Spring Reading, held at Open Book (home of The Loft Literary Center, Milkweed Editions and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts) in Minneapolis, presented the work of 15 students published in the arts and literature magazine.
Students and volunteers presented works in the Target Performance Hall, backdropped by all the artwork published in the spring issue, and provided homemade vegan desserts for the audience.
“The best part of the evening was getting a chance to meet our contributors and seeing the wonderful diversity of Metropolitan students and how students of all ages and interests come together to share their pride and joy—their writing,” said the organizer of the event, Mary Ringstad, community faculty member, College of Management. Thomas Nelson, College of Arts and Sciences dean, commented, “This is the kind of funky, life changing activity that makes Metropolitan State unique and wonderful.”
