Rebecca Gayle Howell & Nick Flynn (04/24/13)

On 24 April, Rebecca Gayle Howell read at Cleveland State University to celebrate the release of her first collection of poetry Render: An Apocalypse (Cleveland State Poetry Center, 2013), which was selected by Nick Flynn for this year’s CSU Poetry Center’s Fist Book Prize.

    Back in the 70’s we went through one of the first real shortages of
    oil and OPEC became a household name. In addition, there
    are many different clog designs, from ones that look like slippers to pairs that have an appearance similar to dress shoes.
    But meeting your child’s teacher or having dinner date with your friends would
