Reading and Reception with Poets Cynthia Hogue and Karen Brennan
David Bryant Perkins

The award-winning poets host a reception for their newest books, including poetry readings at 7:30pm.

Hogue's Revenance, her eighth collection, considers the questions of life and afterlife in poems of encounters with others, both natural and supernatural.

Brennan's Little Dark, her seventh collection, animates the elements of life in poems that navigate a wildly populated and open sky.

CYNTHIA HOGUE has published fourteen books and chapbooks. Among her honors are fellowships from the NEA, the Fulbright Foundation, and the MacDowell Colony. Revenance is her eighth collection of poems. She teaches in the MFA program at Arizona State University.

KAREN BRENNAN, PH.D. is the author of seven books of varying genres including four poetry collections, two short story collections, a memoir, and a forthcoming novel fiction, Monsters. Her fiction, poetry and nonfiction have appeared in anthologies from Norton, Penguin, Graywolf, Spuytin Duyvil, Michigan Press and Georgia Press, among others. A National Endowment of the Arts recipient, she is Professor Emerita at the University of Utah, where she also served as fiction editor for Western Humanities Review. Since 1992, she has taught at the Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers.
