English alum to read from poetry collection

UWindsor creative writing grad Nasser Hussain (MFA 2003) will read from his new book of poems, Love Language, during a free public launch event March 7 at Biblioasis Bookshop.

Joining him is professor Susan Holbrook, who describes Dr. Hussain’s latest collection as “a wonderful, musical, playful, critical celebration and investigation of English.”

Hussain is a lecturer in literature and creative writing at Leeds Beckett University in the U.K. He served as UWindsor writer-in-residence in January 2019.

Dr. Holbrook says she was pleased to be invited to be his “reading buddy” and plans to read from a work-in-progress, a creative non-fiction memoir about mid-life and menopause.

The event will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday at the shop, located at 1520 Wyandotte St. East.
