September 24, 2015: Poet-- Christopher Ankney in HUM 112, 2:00-3:15

Christopher Ankney, an AACC faculty member, is the author of Hearsay, the winner of the 2014 Jean Feldman Prize-winner from Washington Writers' Publishing House.

“Hearsay is a collection of poems whose experiences are verified by Ankney’s rich and subtle imagination. He has teased out the imperative (Here, say) hidden in the title, and as such Ankney’s poems provide an enduring testimony for what it’s like to be alive in our calamitous, heart-breaking and over-charged epoch.”— Michael Collier
