OCU's 15 Annual Thatcher Hoffman Smith Poetry Serie

April 3rd 2013 - 8:00pm

Join us for one of our country’s most talented poets and one of its most eloquent communicators. Hayes will be on campus to read some of his poems, talk about his writing process, and respond to questions at a 10:00 AM session on Wednesday, April 3, 2013. He will read his poetry at an 8:00 PM session. Both events will be on the campus of Oklahoma City University. Both sessions are also free and open to the public for those who arrive first. Full Circle Bookstore will be at the events selling Hayes’ books, and he will sign books after both sessions. An Open-Mic Poetry Reading will be held from 6:15 PM to 7:30 PM.

One of the most compelling voices in American poetry, Terrance Hayes won the 2010 National Book Award for his most recent collection Lighthead. He has also published three other books of poetry: Wind in a Box (2006), winner of a Pushcart Prize; Hip Logic (2002), winner of the National Poetry Series, a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award, and runner-up for the James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets; and Muscular Music (1999), winner of both the Whiting Writers Award and the Kate Tufts Discovery Award. His other honors include a Whiting Writers Award, the Kate Tufts Discovery Award, a National Poetry Series award, a Pushcart Prize, two Best American Poetry selections, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and a Guggenheim Fellowship. His poems have appeared in literary journals and magazines including The New Yorker, Poetry, The American Poetry Review, Ploughshares, Fence, and The Kenyon Review.
