Poetry Night will feature an evening of poetry readings featuring Jack Heflin, and the husband and wife duo of C.D. Wright and Forrest Gander of Rhode Island.

Heflin, a professor of English at the University of Louisiana in Monroe, recently published his second book, "Local Hope," a critically acclaimed collection of 43 poems. His first collection, "The Map of Leaving," won the Montana First Book Award. His poems have appeared in many journals, including The Antioch Review, Poetry Northwest, Nimrod, Willow Springs, the Missouri Review, Green Mountains Review and Poetry East, and in several anthologies.

C.D. Wright

Mountain Home native C.D. Wright will be on campus on October 1 for a poetry reading with her husband Forrest Gander.

A native of Mountain Home, Ark., Wright is a professor of literary arts at Brown University. She has published over a dozen books, including "Rising, Falling, Hovering (2008)"; "Like Something Flying Backwards: New and Selected Poems (2007)"; and a text edition of "One Big Self: An Investigation (2003)," a project she undertook with photographer Deborah Luster to document Louisiana inmates. She has also published several book-length poems, including the critically acclaimed "Deepstep Come Shining (1998)."

Born in California's Mojave Desert, poet Forrest Gander grew up in Virginia and attended the College of William & Mary, where he majored in geology. After receiving an MA in literature from San Francisco State University, Gander moved to Mexico, then to Arkansas, where his poetry—informed by his knowledge of geology—turned its attention to landscape as foreground or source of action.  Gander's books of poetry include "Eye Against Eye (2005)," "Torn Awake (2001)," and "Science & Steepleflower (1998)."  Though primarily a poet, Gander is also a translator, novelist, essayist, and the editor of two anthologies.
