I was fortunate enough to come in to Central High School in Champaign, IL this past Friday and talk with both an AP English class and Mr. Joe Meyer’s second period welding class. It was a wonderfully eclectic group of students who asked great questions and were kind enough to let me talk about poems for too long.
I’m excited to be reading with Wyn Cooper at the Doudna Fine Arts Center at Eastern Illinois University. The reading will be at 7pm this coming Monday. There will also be a Q&A following the reading, with copies of Translation for sale. Many thanks to the whole English Department, especially Charlotte Pence, for setting the reading up.
Pictures and recap to follow after the reading!
I can’t say enough good things about the faculty, staff, and students I met during my visit to Franklin College this past Tuesday. I especially want to thank my friend Callista Buchen, who is a new faculty member in the Department, and took care of all the details.
I’ve posted a couple of pictures from the event below:
I’ve started to update the Readings page here on the site with everything scheduled for early fall 2015. This is what’s been added so far:
September 18th, 7pm, at Indy Reads Bookstore, 911 Mass Ave. in Indianapolis. Book release reading.
September 21st, 4pm, at Eastern Illinois University
October 6th, 6pm, at the Wick Poetry Center, Kent State University w/ Jane Hirshfield
November 3rd, 7pm, at the Wit Rabbit Reading Series, Chicago, IL
Of course, this is a very incomplete list, and many more readings will be added (both for fall and spring) as they are confirmed!
