Harris County voters will be electing National, State, and County officials, and voting for or against three City Propositions. To find out about the issues, your polling place, and who’s running, the League of Women Voters Guide is a great resource.

The October 24th Poetry & Prose event presents readings in association with the Shrimp Boat Project, a creative research project that explores the regional culture of the Houston area and is sponsored by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts at the University of Houston.
The reading will feature local authors and students from this semester’s Creative Writing Program’s Shrimp Boat Workshop. These writers will present works of non-fiction, poetry, and fiction that delve deeply into the issues surrounding Galveston Bay. Additionally, the reading will feature a small exhibit connected to the Shrimp Boat project, containing books and postcards from the UH Libraries’ Special Collections and photographs by MFA student Stacey Farrell.
The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts will host a reception following the reading.
Find brief reader and artist biographies, view the Poetry and Prose website.
The reading is free and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you there!
