Where Are You Reading?


The answer for me, in this case, is among a group of statues on the Drake University campus in Des Moines, IA. I’m reading from our June Poetry Book Club selection, Allan Peterson’s Fragile Acts. I’ve posted video of this act in our new Facebook group for the Rumpus Poetry Book Club.

We also have a Facebook group now for the Fiction Book Club, and there are plans for us to do similar things with those books. If you’d like to join the Facebook groups, just make a request on the page, and if you want to join the book clubs, stop by the store.

Brian Spears's first collection of poetry, A Witness in Exile, is now available through Louisiana Literature Press, and at his personal website. He is the Poetry Editor for The Rumpus, and teaches poetry at Drake University. More from this author →
