Nationally recognized poet B.H. Fairchild will be reading on UWG campus on March 8 in Kathy Cashen Hall at 6pm. He's about as big as poets can get in the US, having won the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award (now valued at $120,000), multiple NEA fellowships, a Rockefeller fellowship at Bellagio, a Guggenheim, and just about every other major poetry award save the Pulitzer. He's published by Norton, the premier poetry house in New York, and it just couldn't get much bigger here in Carrollton.
Even if you don't consider yourself a poetry enthusiast, you should come to this. Fairchild's poems are steeped in the cultures of small towns across the southwest. Narratively driven, the work is approachable, inviting, and still wildly imaginative.
Underground Books will be on hand selling copies of his newest collection of work, Blue Buick.
