Please join us on Wednesday, November 16 at 7 pm in Room LL430 for a reading by Kevin Prufer. Prufer will read from his most recent publications, including The Art of Fiction: Poems, which has been described as “phenomenal in both senses of the word.”
Kevin Prufer's newest poetry collection, The Fears, is forthcoming from Copper Canyon Press. He is the author of several other books of poetry, including The Art of Fiction (2021), How He Loved Them (2018), Churches (2014), In a Beautiful Country (2011), and National Anthem (2008), all from Four Way Books. He's also edited several volumes of poetry. With Wayne Miller, Prufer directs the Unsung Masters Series, a book series devoted to bringing the work of great but little known authors to new generations of readers. Prufer is a professor in the Creative Writing Program at the University of Houston and the low-residency MFA at Lesley University. Among Prufer's awards and honors are many Pushcart prizes and Best American Poetry selections, numerous awards from the Poetry Society of America, and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Lannan Foundation.
This event is free and open to all.
