Upcoming Events: South Bend

Poetry Reading | Nate Pritts

WHEN: Thursday, October 19th, 7:30pm
WHERE: 3rd Floor Bridge of Wiekamp Hall at Indiana University South Bend

Nate Pritts is the author of eight books of poetry, including Decoherence, which won the 42 Miles Press Poetry Award and will be published in the fall of 2017. Nate’s work was also featured in Issue Two of Twyckenham Notes.

His most recent collection is Post Human (2016) which Publishers Weekly says “leads readers through a poetic dystopia that reveals the fragility of the human relationship with technology. Weaving his poems together as a meditative critique of technology and its numbing effect on the everyday, Pritts asks readers to imagine other possibilities amid ‘this daily flood/ of ephemera, this electronic life.’”
