Teaching associate and doctoral candidate Ed Carvalho from the Department of English has been invited as reader and guest workshop coordinator for the 2010 Big Read in Wisconsin.

He will be engaged in March, before the official Big Read kick-off, for a week-long residency that will focus on poetry workshops in area high schools in preparation for the Walworth County Arts Council writing competition. Carvalho’s workshops will be geared towards high school males who are noted as a special concern in the NEA report Reading at Risk.
