Todd Robinson Opens Season’s Reading Series
September 18th, 2018
Omaha, NEâ€”UNO Creative Writing Professor and poet Todd Robinson will be reading for the public tomorrow evening. Itâ€™s the Writerâ€™s Workshop reading series, which for over 40 years has been inviting leading voices in poetry to present in Omaha and that includes UNO faculty.
Despite having already established himself as a poet an educator of the craft, Robinson still reads poetry with youthful eyes.
On Wednesday, Robinson will be reading from his latest book, Mass for Shut-Ins, published just this year.
The collection is concerned with the familial and the personal, but not without a confessional element that complicates what can unfortunately be passed off as day-to-day.
Robinson will also read from some previous collections and some new unpublished poetry. Readings for some writers sometimes seems like a literary parade, but itâ€™s really an opportunity for writers and audiences to engage with work that is still finding form.
UNOâ€™s Writersâ€™ Workshop Reading Series, featuring Todd Robinson, is tomorrow evening, Wednesday, September 18th at 7:30pm in UNOâ€™s Weber Fine Artâ€™s Building. The event is free and open to the public, and will include a Q&A. For more information about tomorrowâ€™s reading or this semesterâ€™s reading series lineup, search UNO Writerâ€™s Workshop online.
