Author talk-Bruce Pratt: Trash Detail and Forms and Shade
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Author Talk - "Trash Detail: Stories" by Bruce Pratt

Bruce will discuss writing in difference genres and well as read from his book. There will be time for questions following Bruce's presentation.

Bruce Pratt is an award-winning short story writer, poet, and playwright. He is the author of the novel The Serpents of Blissfull from Mountain State Press, the poetry collection Boreal from Antrim House Books, The Trash Detail: Stories from New Rivers Press, and the poetry chapbook Forms and Shades from Clare Songbirds Publishing. His fiction, poetry, drama, and essays have appeared in more than forty magazines, reviews, and journals across the United States, and in Canada, Ireland, and Wales. He is the editor of American Fiction.

Bruce teaches at the University of Maine and through workshops sponsored by the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance.

Reviews

Bruce Pratt’s poems are smart and accomplished. He keeps a close watch on the natural world, and an even closer one on human nature. Boreal is a collection which extends pleasure to insight on every page.  -Gerald Costanzo

A memorable outpouring of passion and paradox, Pratt’s pitch-perfect poems entwine uncertainties into a retrospective which rather than striking back at experience, holds it gracefully, gratefully, close at hand. Again and again I’m drawn back into these poems of faith, deeply rooted in a man standing firm, chest-deep in the current of each passing, uncertain moment, any desire to be rescued not out of fear but because someone looked for you and not finding you where you should be / dove into the waves for love.     -Dzvinia Orlowsky     

You can find out more about Bruce on his website.

Books will be available for sale.

SEXUAL VIOLENCE AND AMERICAN INDIAN GENOCIDE
Native American studies scholar and activist Andrea Smith reveals the connections between different forms of violence—perpetrated by the state and by society at large—and documents their impact on Native women. Smith connects examples of historical and contemporary colonialism to the high rates of violence against Native American women—the most likely to suffer from poverty-related illness and to survive rape and partner abuse.
