Bluefield College Presents Poet Ethan Fischer
Thursday, April 17, 2008 Easley Library 7 P.M.
Ethan Fischer, author of Beached in the Hourglass, teaches at Shepherd University and “calls summer a gold tooth in God's smile. A radio newsman who sings in his sleep. . . and bills himself Johnny Dime, poet of crime.”
Guest appearance by: Bluefield College poet Rob Merritt, author of Landscape Architects
Poetry Workshop/Discussion: Easley Library, Friday, April 18, 10:00 A.M.
“Ethan Fischer’s poems are a delight. By turns funny and poignant, angry and joyful; each line delivers with utter clarity.” – Denise Giardina
“Ethan Fischer has acute vision for what can tweak us back to life— and a bevy of authentic voices to insinuate such stuff under our skin. These are startling, humorous, grounded, and at times healthily unnerving poems. Good medicine for real life: Take two of these and go see Doctor Johnny Dime first thing in the morning.” – Ed Zahniser
