Two distinguished alumni of UT’s English department will read at “Writers in the Library” Monday, March 30. Charlotte Pence and Brad Tice will read their poetry at 7 p.m. in the Lindsay Young Auditorium of the John C. Hodges Library. The reading is free and open to the public.
Charlotte Pence is an award-winning poet and the editor of The Poetics of American Song Lyrics. Her new full-length collection, Many Small Fires, explores her father’s chronic homelessness while simultaneously detailing the psychological changes that enabled humans to form cities, communities and households. She is also a professor of English and creative writing at Eastern Illinois University.
Bradford Tice is the author of two books of poetry: Rare Earth (New Rivers Press, 2013) which was named the winner of the 2011 Many Voices Project, and What the Night Numbered (forthcoming, 2015), winner of the 2014 Trio Award. He currently teaches at Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln.
Read a review of Pence’s Many Small Fires at Chapter 16: a community of Tennessee writers, readers and passersby (brought to you by Humanities Tennessee).
Writers in the Library hosts readings by noted authors of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction. The series is sponsored by the UT Libraries and the UT Creative Writing Program in association with the John C. Hodges Better English Fund.
