Events Brazen Creature

Published on March 28th, 2018 | by University Communications


Hear readings by Dr. Anne Barngrover on April 10

Everyone is welcome to attend a reading by Dr. Anne Barngrover from her new book of poems, Brazen Creature, at 1 p.m., Tuesday, April 10, in TECO Hall, located in the Tapia School of Business building. Brazen Creature was named as the 2016 Akron Poetry Prize Editor’s Choice and recently published by The University of Akron Press.

Brazen Creature spans a young woman’s awakening. In the poems’ Midwestern towns and farmlands, patriarchy is a ghost that haunts the cottonwoods, soybean fields, and creek beds. The speaker in these poems is in a limbo between fear and yearning, vulnerability and transgression, drought and flood, saving a life and needing to be saved.

This is a free event presented by The Department of Language Studies and The Arts, and it is open to the public.
