The Southern Indiana Reading Series will be hosting two stunning and accomplished writers: poet, Taneum Bambrick and novelist Jordan Farmer. Each will read from their recently published books, after which there will be a Q&A session. 

In Bambrick's collection, Vantage, and Farmer's novel, The Poison Flood, we have two wildly different and wildly stunning explorations of human cruelty, love, and environmental degradation in America's small-town and rural landscapes. 
Of Bambrick's debut book of poetry, Sharon Olds writes: "Vantage is a love poem to the creature which is the earth, to its substance and flora and fauna, including us: imperfect as each of us is in our ability to love; and loved as each of us could be."
Publishers Weekly reviewed The Poison Flood, describing it this way: "This affecting novel from Farmer combines an unconventional lead with a sobering portrayal of an environmental disaster’s impact on a small community... Readers who like their fiction to have a social conscience will want to take a look.”

The virtual reading will be a virtual event.
