4 p.m. Oct. 19 – Award-winning poet David Eye, author of “Seed,” gives a reading, in the Bayley Room on the second floor of Beeghly Library, 43 Rowland Ave., Delaware.

Of “Seed,” critics have said, “The poems in ‘Seed’ are luminous and intimate. With emotional clarity that surprises and enriches, David Eye has crafted a debut that illuminates how queerness shapes and shelters the self.”

Eye’s work also has appeared in journals and anthologies including The Queer South, Hunger Mountain, and Lambda Literary. He is the recipient of a 2017 Walter E. Dakin Fellowship in Poetry and a 2014 Tennessee Williams Scholarship in Poetry from the Sewanee Writers’ Conference.

He holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Syracuse University and is working as a visiting assistant professor this year at Ohio Wesleyan. Admission is free.
