It's a ways off, but we wanted to give you an early heads-up on a special poetry reading we'll be doing in late October (namely, the 30th at 7:30 pm) with Philip Fried and John Brehm. The rough details on your illustrious readers:
Philip Fried has published five books of poetry, the most recent being Early/Late: New and Selected Poems (Salmon, 2011). Publishers Weekly called that book “skillful and memorable,” and The Literary Review declared, “In realms between and including the Almighty and actuarial tables, Fried speaks every language faithfully and eloquently. Rejoice! Read!”
John Brehm was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, and educated at the University of Nebraska and Cornell University. He is the author of Sea of Faith, which won the 2004 Brittingham Prize, and Help Is on the Way, which won the 2012 Four Lakes Prize, both from the University of Wisconsin Press.
