Hamden, CT - Kaye McDonough, an adjunct professor of English at Quinnipiac University, will read excerpts from her poetry collection, “Pagan,” at 2 p.m. on Friday, April 25, in the Carl Hansen Student Center, Room 119, on the Mount Carmel Campus.

The event, which is part of the creative writing program's "Yawp!" series, an open dialogue on creativity and the arts, is free and open to the public.

“Kaye was very involved in the beat poetry scene,” said Kenneth Cormier, an assistant professor of English who organizes the “Yawp!” series. “We’re lucky to have her at Quinnipiac teaching our freshmen. She has a rich literary history of her own.”

McDonough was born in Pittsburgh in 1943 and studied literature at Vassar College before transferring to the University of California at Berkeley, where she earned a degree in art history during the 1960s. She went to Paris in 1963 and explored the literary haunts of the "lost generation" before making her way back to California. She became part of the North Beach scene in San Francisco as a young publisher of Greenlight Press, and associate editor and typesetter for Alix Geluardi’s now classic anthology of San Francisco poets, “185.” She has an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College, and has been a visiting playwright/poet at City College of New York, University of Utah and Brown University. She has taught at various colleges and universities and is currently at work on a memoir, “The Spell of Bohemia.”

“Yawp!” started in Fall 2012 and features four visiting writers per semester.

“We are working to build and sustain a vibrant literary community at Quinnipiac,” Cormier said. “We are extremely excited to welcome these excellent writers and poets.”
