CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa "Writer's Talk" reading series will host a "Leap Day Poetry Reading" by Kim Groninga, UNI instructor of languages and literatures, at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 29, at 161 Baker Hall, on the UNI campus. This event is free and open to the public.

Groninga teaches composition and creative writing at UNI. She is the nonfiction editor of the "North American Review," the longest-lived American literary magazine that is based at UNI. She is also the author of the poetry collection "Other Things That Grow."

"Groninga approaches her world from the angle of a fine sculptor to reveal the true essence of what we take for granted in the environment around us," said Mary Swander, a distinguished professor of English at Iowa State University, about the collection of poetry.
