Hearing Voices with Michael Nye and Peter Gardner

Join us at Orr Street Studios at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, for readings of prose by Michael Nye and poetry by Peter Gardner.


Michael Nye’s debut short story collection is Strategies Against Extinction. His fiction and nonfiction has appeared in Boulevard, Cincinnati Review, Crab Orchard Review and New South, among many other publications. He is a Columbia resident and works as the managing editor of TheMissouri Review.


After spending his early years in England, Canada, and a Maori community in New Zealand,  Peter became an anthropologist with a focus on hunter-gatherers in India and Canada’s Subarctic.  He has also studied Hindu civilization and spent time in Japan.  Peter has been writing poems since 1966 and personal essays since 2009. His 2006 memoir, Journeys to the Edge, was runner-up for a national award. Orr Street Studios attract him, for he painted in oils as a youth, studied calligraphy in Japan, and entered photography shows in the 1980s and ‘90s.

Orr Street Studios is located at 106 Orr St. in downtown Columbia, Mo. Join us every Tuesday evening during the academic year for literary readings and visual-arts presentations.
