Oil Hill Reading Series | Butler Community College

Oil Hill Reading Series

Since its inception in 2001, the Oil Hill Reading Series has exposed students, staff and greater El Dorado-area residents to some of the finest early to mid-career poets in the United States. From National Critics Circle Award-winner Albert Goldbarth, to first book up-and-comers such as Mathew Roth and Lise Goett, the Series has provided a venue for poets and audiences to enjoy the work, exchange views, converse and expand their mutual interests. Once or twice each academic year, the Series brings in a regional or national figure and hosts a reading, book-signing and reception. The readings take place on either the El Dorado or Andover campus, are free of charge, and open to the public.
