An evening of poetry with Chard DeNiord, author of four books of poetry, including the Alabama Poetry Prize winning Asleep in the Fire and The Double Truth, which the Boston Globe named one of the top ten books of poetry in 2011.  Praised for his “extraordinary verbal imagination” (Hayden Carruth) and for celebrating “the sheer wonder of being” (Peter Campion),  DeNiord, says critic Andrew Hudgins, “sees daily life in terms of eternity and interprets it in a modern rendition of the language of the Biblical psalmist, the language of intelligent and controlled ecstasy.”

Presented by The Program in Creative Writing (English Department) and The Dialogue Center, joining Zoellner Arts Center: Notations
