Nosh n’ Chats are informal and are a way to bring authors and UT faculty and students together to eat, hear a few poems, and ask questions. They are sponsored by the Creative Writing Program. Refreshments will be provided.

His book, Praise Nothing, is a collection of lyric poems that explore the hard truths surrounding faith and doubt in middle-class American suburbia and our broken connection to the transcendent.
