Please join us for an afternoon of poetry with Temple University alumnus and Philadelphia poet Ryan Eckes. He will read from his latest manuscript, General Motors, which centers around labor and the influence of public and private transportation on city life. Eckes’ other books include Valu-Plus and Old News (Furniture Press 2014, 2011), and his poetry can be found in Tripwire, Slow Poetry in America Newsletter, Public Pool, Entropy, and elsewhere. Eckes has worked as an adjunct professor at numerous colleges and is pro-union. He won a Pew Fellowship in 2016.
