Posted on April 5, 2019 by ldavis

\Christopher Keaveney, Linfield College professor of Japanese, global languages and cultural studies department, will read from his recent poetry collection, “The boy who ate nothing but sonnets,” on Thursday, April 18, at 7 p.m. in the Austin Reading Room of Nicholson Library at Linfield.           

“The boy who ate nothing but sonnets” is based on the premise that poetry provides critical nourishment during challenging times. The poems in this collection strike a balance between poems that are deeply personal and those that address larger social issues including homelessness, immigration reform, gun control and resource depletion. The collection, structured as a menu, is divided into three parts that reflect the varied ways that poetry satisfies our hunger. 

Keaveney teaches Japanese language and East Asian culture at Linfield and is the author of four books about Japanese culture and East Asian cultural relations. His poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in Columbia Review, Spoon River Poetry Review, Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review, The Minetta Review, Stolen Island, Faultline, Wilderness House Literary Review, and elsewhere, and he is the author of the collections “Your Eureka not Mined” (Broadstone Books, 2017) and “The Boy Who Ate Nothing But Sonnets” (Clare Songbirds Press, 2019). At Linfield since 1997, he holds a bachelor’s degree from Manhattan College and a master’s and Ph.D. from Washington University. 

The reading is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Department of Global Languages and Cultural Studies. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. For more information, contact Keaveney at 503-883-2584 or ckeaven@linfield.edu.
