The second annual Lincoln Land Review reading was held Oct 27 on the campus of Lincoln Land Community College. Readers are current and former students, whose academic essays, short stories, and creative non-fiction pieces are featured in this year's magazine. In this excerpt, you'll hear highlights from the evening. Dr. Alison Stachera, Professor of English and co-editor of academic non-fiction for the Lincoln Land Review emceed this event.
The first reader is Fayne Davis, who discusses his own temporary brush with homelessness in Springfield. Highlights are from his essay, "A Blessing in Disguise." Esmeralda Garcia relates how she works at the "Bottom of the Food Chain" at Memorial Medical Center. The next reader is Heather Kyle, who explains in her personal essay how a close encounter with a fatal car accident helped heal a troubled relationship. Sarah Skorczewski's short story, "Sto Lat/Sto Lat" won first place in the Review's "Best Of: Fiction" competition, and she shares a section of it here. The last reader is Monica Speeks, who offers a critical analysis of Edgar Allen Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado" with her essay entitled, "Edgar Allen Poe: The Tomb of Pride."
