Join us for readings by Francesca Bell and Brian Laidlaw!
Francesca Bell’s poems and translations appear in many journals, including ELLE, Massachusetts Review, New Ohio Review, North American Review, Prairie Schooner, and Rattle. She is the former poetry editor of River Styx and the author of Bright Stain (Red Hen Press, 2019).
Brian Laidlaw is a poet-songwriter whose previous books include THE STUNTMAN (Milkweed Editions, 2015) and THE MIRRORMAKER (Milkweed Editions, 2018), each of which was released with a companion album of original music; a book-length erasure of John Muir called SUMMER ERR is also forthcoming from Mount Vision Press this year. A PhD candidate in Creative Writing at the University of Denver, Brian continues to tour nationally as a folksinger, and moonlights – often literally – as a rock climber.
