such journals as Poetry Ireland Review,
Commonweal, South Dakota Review
, and South
Carolina Review.
  About the new book
poet Edward Hirsch says, "Matthew Brennan's artful, quiet, well-made poems
glare with a bright light, burning moments, intense memories.  One
is a book that surprises and shines."  One
is Brennan's first full-length collection since The House with the Mansard Roof (2009), a finalist for the Best
Books of Indiana.  

The reading will be followed by a short Q&A.
