Enjoy an evening of poetry with four writers from around the country. Aaron McCollough is the author of several poetry collections, including the most recent, Rank, “in which forces of nature, mind, spirit, and language partake of each other in vibrant and shifting ways.” Jennifer Chang is the author of Some Say the Lark, which Natasha Trethewey calls “a piercing meditation, rooted in loss and longing, and manifest in dazzling leaps of the imagination—the familiar world rendered strange." Lindsay Bernal is the author of What It Doesn't Have to Do With. Jericho Brown says, "The humor of Lindsay Bernal is rife with allusion to the history of American poetry tradition and cut with merciless self-reflection....These poems question what we take for granted about language and the ways our own words can bind us...."  Danielle Cadena Deulen is the author of Our Emotions Get Carried Away Beyond Us, which Denise Duhamel calls “fiercely intelligent… Deulen's poems are slippery pronouncements of our ever-allusive present which is co-opted by nostalgia for our past… and anxiety for our future.”
