Miranda July speaks at University of Tampa

Miranda July
   The University of Tampa has a week of readings by a bunch of great authors and poets  starting June 13. There's one clear standout, and that's the phenomenal author/actor/screenwriter/director/performance artist Miranda July. She'll be doing a reading next Saturday, June 15.
   July is probably most widely known for writing, directing and starring in the films "Me and You and Everyone We Know" and "The Future." But she works in a variety of media. Her work is hard to categorize or describe, but if you know who she is, you're probably already jazzed about getting to experience her doing a reading.
   Her appearance, like all the others in UT's series of summer readings, is free and open to the public. They're all on or around the UT campus in downtown Tampa and they all start at 7 p.m.
   Here's the rundown. for the whole series. Except for the first reading, they're all at venues on the UT campus, at 401 W. Kennedy Blvd. For information, go to
