Welcoming Brian Blanchfield to The Betsy Writer’s Room


Brian Blanchfield is the author of two books of poetry, Not Even Then (University of California Press, 2004) and A Several World (Nightboat Books, 2014), which received the 2014 James Laughlin Award and was named a longlist finalist for the National Book Award in Poetry. His collection of literary essays–autobiography and cultural close readings–is forthcoming from Nightboat early in 2015. An editor of Fence and the host of Speedway and Swan, a bi-weekly poetry and music program co-produced with the University of Arizona Poetry Center, he lives in Tucson.

The Betsy will host a Breakfast Arts Salon on Thursday, May 14th from 9:30am to 11:00am.  If you’re planning on being in Miami Beach that day, please do RSVP for this intimate conversation with the artist.  Register for this free event HERE.
