On Saturday, January 28, 2023 the Little Stony Point Citizens Association (LSPCA) held its second Community Reading and Open-Mic for local high school students. Professor Curto who teaches Creative Nonfiction here at MSU is a member of the Advisory Board of this group and helped to organize this event. When looking to invite writers who could share their work, process and insight she decided to turn to her former students, Crystal Castro and Evan Dekens since they are both working writers and terrific storytellers. It was a great evening of connection, literature and community work.
