Laurie Viera Rigler, novelist, web series writer, and author of Rude Awakenings of Jane Austen Addict.

Laurie Viera Rigler's novels Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict and
Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict (both published by Plume in North America and by Bloomsbury in the UK) could have been considered semi-autobiographical had they not involved time travel and body
switching. Her short story, "Intolerable Stupidity," in which Mr. Darcy brings charges against all the writers of Pride and Prejudice sequels, spin-offs and retellings, appears in the anthology Jane Austen Made Me Do It (Ballantine). In addition to working on her third and fourth novels, Laurie is the creator of the Babelgum original web series Sex and the Austen Girl, which is inspired by her Austen Addict novels. All 23 episodes can be found on Laurie's online home, janeaustenaddict.com.

All readings are 7 p.m. Thursdays in The Academic Commons, Fourth Floor, Main Building. All events are free and open to the public. Refreshments are available.

Medaille College's Write Thing Reading Series just might be one of the most eclectic visiting artist series at any educational institution in Buffalo. Each semester, Medaille invites from 3 to 6 published poets and fiction writers to campus for readings and/or class visits. Students at Medaille have the unique chance to meet up close and personal with Pulitzer Prize winners, National Book Award finalists, Guggenheim Fellowship recipients, and some of the most renowned international writers of today - as well as up-and-coming younger writers.

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
