Byrne Poetry Reading: Valparaiso University, October 27

I am honored to inform everyone that I have been invited to read my poetry this Wednesday, October 27 at 7:00 p.m. in the Brauer Museum of Art at Valparaiso University. This presentation is part of the fall series of authors’ readings co-sponsored by the Wordfest program and the Valparaiso University Department of English.

I am especially pleased that the event will be hosted by the Brauer Museum of Art, whose permanent collection displays some of the paintings that have graced the covers of my books over the years and also have provided cover art for many of Valparaiso Poetry Review’s issues.

In advance, visitors are invited to view a brief biographical note and a sampling of poems from my latest book, Seeded Light.

This event is free and open to the public. Copies of my books will be available for purchase. A reception and book signing will follow the reading.

How nice that this is happening at Valparaiso. So many university ignore the fine poets on their own campuses. Congratulations!
