CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa "Writers Talk" reading series will host a poetry reading by Waterloo native Sandy Longhorn at 7 p.m., on Wednesday, March 21, in 161 Baker Hall on the UNI campus. This event is free and open to the public.

Longhorn teaches at Pulaski Technical College and lives in Little Rock, Ark. She earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in poetry from the University of Arkansas in 2003.

Longhorn is the author of the poetry collection "Blood Almanac," published by Anhinga Press in 2006. This book won the 2005 Anhinga Prize for Poetry. "Sandy Longhorn writes beautifully and convincingly of the Great Plain and of her native Iowa," said David McCombs, a poet, about the collection of poetry.
