Last week’s event at the North Dakota Museum of Art was fantastic with close to 100 people showing up to hear the a selection of poets from the recently published anthology: North Dakota is Everywhere.
The poets were hosted by North Dakota Quarterly’s poetry editor, Heidi Czerwiec.
Students and the public got a chance to mingle afterward at the reception and an interested crowd gathered around the poet Debra Marquart who grew up in Napoleon, ND and now directs the M.F.A. program at Iowa State.
Nuri Öncel and Sharon Carson reflect on the readings in animated conversation.
Thanks to Tim Pasch for the fantastic photographs of the event.
