Award-winning poet John Brehm October 30 at 7:30 pm.

Taking the reader from the subways of New York City to the savannas of Paleolithic Africa to the transplant ward of Kyoto University Hospital, John Brehm's new collection of poems, Help Is on the Way, is enlivened by the same subtle music, penetrating wit, and emotional honesty that have won him high praise over the years.

John Brehm’s poems have appeared in Poetry, The Gettysburg Review, The Southern Review, Gulf Coast, Barrow Street, Prairie Schooner, the Missouri Review and many other journals and anthologies. He is author of Sea of Faith, winner of the 2004 Brittingham Prize in Poetry, and associate editor of The Oxford Book of American Poetry. He lived in New York City for many years and now resides in Portland, Oregon.
