The Pfister Hotel has chosen poet and novelist Dasha Kelly to be the newest Pfister Narrator, the hotel's in-house storyteller and blogger.

Over the course of six months, Kelly will interview visitors and guests in The Pfister lobby and share their stories on The Pfister's blog.

Kelly was chosen from a selection of qualified applicants based on her writing style, personality and experience, which includes anthologies, textbooks and magazines, as well as online and in her newest collection, "Hershey Eats Peanuts."

Kelly's residency as The Pfister Narrator will begin May 1. She replaces current narrator Ed Makowski, who has been blogging at the hotel since Nov. 1.
