The Department of English in the College of Arts and Sciences presents the Raymond Carver Reading Series.

Brooks Haxton has published eight books of original poems, one book of creative nonfiction, and four books of translations from French, German, and Classical Greek. Some of his most recent books are They Lift Their Wings to Cry (a collection of poems from Knopf), Fading Hearts on the River (nonfiction from Counterpoint Press) and My Blue Piano (translations of poems by Else Lasker-Schüler from Syracuse University Press). His ninth collection of poems, Mister Toebones, will be published by Knopf in March 2021. He has received awards, fellowships, and grants of support for original poetry, translation, and scriptwriting from the NEA, NEH, Guggenheim Foundation, and others. He has taught at Syracuse University since 1993.

Normally these readings take place in Gifford Auditorium on Syracuse University’s main campus and are open to the public, but because of the global-health situation the Spring 2021 Reading Series will be conducted virtually. If you are interested in a Zoom invitation to a particular reading, please contact Sarah Harwell at
