The 82: Writers Reading

The 82: Writers Reading is the Creative Writing minor's reading series, featuring distinguished Chicago writers of all genres, Northeastern faculty members and Northeastern student writers. The series hosts four to six events per academic year, and is named after the CTA's Kimball bus line, which gets many Chicagoans to our Main Campus and El Centro locations.

During Alumni Weekend, The 82 regularly curates a program for "Poetry and Pancakes" in the Student Union Courtyard.
