RC Alumna Carmen Bugan will visit Ken Mikolowski's Poetry writing class on Thursday September 13 at 2:30pm in 315 Dennison. Bugan continued her studies after her RC career at Oxford, where she received a PhD. Her book of poetry "Crossing the Carpathians" was published by Oxford University Press.
Bugan was born in Romania to a family of political dissidents during the Ceausescu regime. Following her father's imprisonment for anticommunist propaganda the family was exiled to the US in 1989. Her memoir of this time, Burying the Typewriter, has just been published and she will read and discuss it in Mikolowski's class. All RC students and faculty are invited.
Bugan will also read from her book at Nicola's Bookstore in Ann Arbor on Tuesday, September 11.
