English Stars in 10-25 Minnesota Daily

The Minnesota Daily newspaper's October 25 issue contains two feature articles with English connections. CLA Winton Chair Nuruddin Farah, hosted by English, is interviewed about his latest novel Crossbones and its backdrop of Somali turmoil; Farah is reading from the novel, released next week in paperback, Monday October 29 at 7 pm at the Loft Literary Center. PhD candidate Bomi Yoon graces the front page of the Daily--and is interviewed inside about her participation in the production "Under My Skin: Asian American Student Stories" performed Friday and Saturday October 26-27, 7:30 pm, in the Nolte Xperimental Theatre at Rarig. Recent BA alumnae Naomi Ko and Audrey Park are also interviewed for the story. The production is directed by Rick Shiomi, the artistic director of the award-winning Asian-American theater company Mu Performing Arts.
