Wake: Up to Poetry
Ciaran Carson is coming, so we broke out the letterpress
We’re all incredibly excited for Ciaran Carson’s reading here at Wake Forest next week, so we thought that we would share some of what we’ve been doing to make the time pass more quickly. WFU Press intern Sophie Leveque worked with Craig Fansler of ZSR Library to design a broadside for the reading. It features two poems from Carson’s From Elsewhere, and we’ll have copies available for all attendees of the reading.
Take a look at the video to see how it came about. Instead of using modern technology, we went old school and utilized Wake Forest University’s hundred-year-old letterpress.
The reading will be held at Wake Forest University’s Ring Theatre in Scales Fine Arts Center on November 4th at 7 p.m. More information can be found on our Facebook page. We hope you’ll come and get your broadside signed by Ciaran Carson himself!
