A Festival favorite

Achy Obejas, a widely published poet and fiction writer, gives a presentation last Friday in Chandler Recital Hall for the 19th Annual Literary Festival, "Forbidden Passage." Also a journalist, Obejas writes a weekly column for the Chicago Tribune. The festival which ran from Oct. 10-13, brought 11 writers to campus who helped explore the theme of censorship. Often controversial and thought-provoking, the festival was larger than in years past. It also included open-mike sessions at which students and other area writers could read from their works.
