Helicon West Presents: Jonathan Travelstead & Charles Waugh
Oct 26, 2017, 7:00 pm
The Helicon West series welcomes Charles Waugh, editor of the anthology Wild Mustard: New Voices From Vietnam and poet Jonathan Travelstead, author of Conflict Tours.
Winner of the 2013 Cobalt Poetry Prize for his poem “Trucker,” Jonathan Travelstead has compiled an astounding collection of adrenalized poetry in his first two collections, How We Bury Our Dead and Conflict Tours. Travelstead served in the Air Force National Guard for six years as a firefighter and currently works as a full-time firefighter for the city of Murphysboro. Having finished his MFA at Southern Illinois University of Carbondale, he now works on an old dirt-bike he hopes will one day get him to Peru.
Charles Waugh is an associate professor of English at Utah State University. In 2012, he received a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts for his work in literary translation, which led to the compilation of this anthology. With Nguyen Lien he is the coeditor and cotranslator of Family of Fallen Leaves: Stories of Agent Orange by Vietnamese Writers (2010).
This event is made possible with support from Helicon West, Logan Public Library, and Utah Humanities.
