Hard Freight Café, an open mic event, was held Tuesday, Feb. 25 at 7:00 p.m., in the Titelman Study of the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts.

The event was kicked off by a poetry reading and book launch by Erin Murphy, associate professor of English. Murphy read from her sixth book of poetry, Ancilla, which was published in January by Lamar University Press. The poems in Ancilla are voiced by little-known historical figures who played ancillary roles in the lives of famous writers, artists, musicians, scientists, and philosophers, including Walt Whitman, Friedrich Nietzsche, Georgia O’Keefe, and Gustav Mahler.

Following the poetry reading, attendees were invited to read or perform their own work or music, or share a favorite piece of poetry or prose.

The reading and open mic event were sponsored by the English program and Hard Freight, Penn State Altoona’s student literary magazine.
