I will be wowing audiences — or at least an audience should hopefully be present — this Friday night, reading poetry as part of the Duquesne University English Department’s graduate Echoes Conference. Also on the bill are John Fried (fiction), Craig Bernier (fiction) and Christina Rawls (poetry). The proceedings begin at 7:00pm at the Duquesne Union Africa Room.
Interestingly, I just found out that Duquesne’s campus includes a building (Mellon Hall, pictured) designed by the great architect Mies van der Rohe. It’s right across from the Union, where the reading takes place.
