SeriesCafé Shapiro

Students, nominated by their instructors, read their own poems and short stories. The quality is high! For many student writers, Café Shapiro is a first opportunity to read publicly from their creative work. For others, it provides a fresh audience, and the ability to experience the work of students they may not encounter in writing classes. Join our celebrity hosts as they introduce our student readers. Get more info about our hosts and our student presenters.
