On Thursday, November 4th, the Axton Reading Series brings poet Brian Teare to read from his work in the Bingham Poetry Room of Ekstrom Library at 7:30pm.
The following morning Mr. Teare will teach a master class, workshopping student poetry (see below for submission details). This class will be held in Bingham Humanities 300 from 10am-noon.
A former Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, Brian Teare is the recipient of poetry fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the MacDowell Colony.
