University of Minnesota M.F.A. graduate and poet Michael Walsh will discuss his book, The Dirt Riddles, on Thursday, September 23 at 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E. Minneapolis. Walsh examines a hardscrabble Midwestern family farm through his poetry in The Dirt Riddles. His use of lyrics evokes a lost way of life that was both beloved and bruising as his poems progress from a boyhood on the farm to the urban life of adulthood. The Dirt Riddles captures Walsh’s experiences growing up on a dairy farm and coming out as a young gay man in the rural Midwest. Walsh will sign copies of his book following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, or to order a signed copy visit www.bookstore.umn.edu/genref/authors.html. (UMNBookstore)
