Verse Like Water: the visiting poet program of Central Lakes College presents Nick Flynn!

February 14 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST

nick flynn

Verse Like Water: the visiting poet program of Central Lakes College, will present New York Times best-selling author Nick Flynn, February 14th, at noon in the Chalberg Theater. Nick is a poet, playwright, and memoirist, and his book Being Flynn topped the New York Times best seller list. It was subsequently turned into a film starring Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore, and Paul Dano.

Enlisting brilliant, vivid language, Nick’s poetry fearlessly interrogates all topics. He is sometimes hilarious, and other times his work shines light on suffering and darkness that for him is quite personal. His three books of poetry so far include Some Ether, The Captain Asked for a Show of Hands, and My Feelings. He truly is one of the beloved stars of the American poetry scene.

This literary event is free and open to the public, and sponsored by Five Wings Arts Council and Minnesota Public Radio. It will be followed by a book signing, and a craft talk on creativity and the imagination, also in the Chalberg Theater.
