Talking to Unit 4 public schools

I was fortunate enough to come into 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 abut poems for too long.

Eastern Illinois University reading photos

I had an amazing reading with Wyn Cooper last Monday at Eastern Illinois University. I've posted a few photos below. Again, many thanks to the EIU English Department and especially Charlotte Pence for having me.

Reading at Eastern Illinois University, Monday September 21st

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!

An amazing time at Franklin College

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. A few photos of the event:
