The Fresno State Creative Writing Alumni Chapter celebrated our first summer themed reading, Lit Pup.

Time: 3 to 5 PM
Date: Sunday, June 25, 2017
Place: Gazebo Gardens Nursery (3204 N. Van Ness Boulevard)

The event brought together the love of literature and the love of dogs for one doggone poetic event! It featured literary readings and a competition among dog owners who dressed their dogs as their favorite authors.

FREE Admission. Food trucks. Beer garden. FUN for all ages. NO CATS ALLOWED. Entry for dog competition was $5.

One small dog and one large dog won prizes from Whitie’s Pets as selected by our judges: Mary Castro, First Lady of Fresno State; Saúl Jiménez-Sandoval, Dean, College of Arts and Humanities; and Bryan Medina, Poet Laureate of Fresno.
