Poet and Iraq war veteran Brian Turner will be speaking at a February event celebrating the launch of Prairie Schooner’s winter issue, with readings by contributors Ted Genoways, Eduardo Halfon, and Mihaela Moscaliuc. The event centers on the issue’s theme of “War and Conflict,” and is free and open to the public.
The event will also feature the multimedia and photography exhibit “Assignment Afghanistan” by writer/photographer Elliott D. Woods, an introduction by Prairie Schooner editor-in-chief Kwame Dawes, and several UNL students sharing their experiences in actual world combat zones. A book signing and reception will follow.
Woods’s “Assignment Afghanistan” exhibit will be on display the day of the event, and is also free and open to the public.
