BEI Emeritus Fellow Debra Marquart will read from her work at Kansas State University this coming Friday.

Marquart is a professor of English at Iowa State University, where she teaches in the Master of Fine Arts program in creative writing and environment. She also teaches in the Stonecoast Low-Residency Master of Fine Arts program at University of Southern Maine.

Marquart is the author of two poetry collections — “Everything’s a Verb” and “From Sweetness” — and a collection of interrelated short stories, “The Hunger Bone: Rock & Roll Stories,” which draws on her experiences as a female road musician. She has released two CDs with her rhythm and blues project, “The Bone People,” and continues to perform solo as a singer/songwriter.

More information about Marquart’s work is available from her website.

Marquart’s reading is sponsored by the English department, K-State Libraries, the Konza Prairie Biological Station, and the Konza Long-Term Ecological Research Program, with assistance from the Big 12 Faculty Fellowship Program.

The event is free and open to the public. A book-signing will follow the reading.
