Writer Maud Macrory Powell to Give Reading at Westminster School

Writer Maud Macrory Powell will give a reading at Westminster April 26 as part of the school’s Friday Nights at Westminster series of readings and concerts held during the academic year. Student readers will include Fourth Former Nathalie Charles and Fifth Former Vernita Zhai.
Powell, a 1990 alumna of Westminster, comes from a family of writers. “City of Grit and Gold” is her debut novel, and her essay “The Fruits of My Labor” was published in the anthology “Greenhorns: The Next Generation of American Farmers.” Born and raised in Washington, D.C., she studied comparative religion in college and environmental studies in graduate school. She and her husband run an organic seed and vegetable farm in the Siskiyou Mountains of southwestern Oregon.
Powell’s reading at Westminster is free and open to the public and will begin at 7 p.m. in the Gund Reading Room of Armour Academic Center. Ample parking will be available in the parking lot adjacent to Armour Academic Center.
The Friday Nights at Westminster series is made possible by generous grants from the Ford-Goldfarb English Department Enrichment Fund, the McKinley Fund and the Connell Fund.
