Thoroughly enjoyed meeting Mark Yakich last evening. He read from all three of his collections and a bit from his creative nonfiction essays, which is a current writing project. He was charming, witty, devilish, tender--a completely enjoyable evening. We had an audience of over 55 (students, faculty and community).
Next week, Robert Bernard Hass will be reading at Fisher. We're having back to back poetry readings.
