Please join us in TECO hall for a reading by Dr. Anne Barngrover from her new book of poems, Brazen Creature, which was named as the 2016 Akron Poetry Prize Editor's Choice and recently published by University of Akron Press. Brazen Creature spans a young woman’s awakening. In the poems’ Midwestern towns and farmlands, patriarchy is a ghost that haunts the cottonwoods, soybean fields, and creek beds. The speaker in these poems is in limbo between fear and yearning, vulnerability and transgression, drought and flood, saving a life and needing to be saved.
