SELINSGROVE — Susquehanna graduate Sal Pane, ’07, will give a reading from his novel “Last Call in the City of Bridges” at the launch of Susquehanna’s RiverCraft magazine on Monday at 7:30 p.m. in Isaacs Auditorium in Seibert Hall. The reading is sponsored by the Writers Institute at Susquehanna University and will also feature readings by students who have been published in this year’s magazine.
Pane’s work has appeared in American Short Fiction and PANK. He was the winner of the 2010 Turow-Kinder Fiction Award, judged by Stewart O’Nan, and subsequently published his first novel in 2012. He is currently an assistant professor of English and creative writing at the University of Indianapolis.
RiverCraft is an on-campus magazine of fiction and poetry produced by students. First published in 1964 under the name Focus, the magazine was renamed Susquehanna Review in 2001. In 2003, the Susquehanna Review became a national literary magazine while the on-campus magazine was renamed RiverCraft.
Each year, one student who is published in the magazine is selected to receive the Juliet Gibson Memorial Award. Two finalists are also selected, one each in prose and poetry. This award was established in 1988 in remembrance of the student editor who died in a campus accident in 1987. The names of the winners will be announced at the reading.
