National Poetry Month Reading Series: Richard Robbins and Mairead Small Staid

Friday, April 9, 2021

April is National Poetry Month and we're celebrating at the BECLS! Join us (via Zoom) for weekly readings each Friday evening with acclaimed and emerging Minnesota poets—we hope you'll be inspired to write a few poems of your own! Richard Robbins was raised in California and Montana but has lived in Minnesota since 1984. His Body Turn to Rain: New and Selected Poems was published by Lynx House Press in 2017. He currently teaches in the creative writing program at Minnesota State Mankato. Mairead Small Staid is the author of The Traces, forthcoming from A Strange Object in 2022. Her poems and essays can be found in The Believer, Poetry, and the Paris Review Daily.
