Saturday, April 28: Montana-based poet and author Derek Hann joins us for a reading from his new poetry chapbook, The Blessings of Life. 1pm.
Derek Hann is an American writer, born in the city of Fairfax, Virginia, just on the outskirts of the nation's capital. He has always had a passion for writing short stories and poems even from a young age. When Derek was seventeen his grandfather died, starting the chapter in his life on living on the road. Packing up most of his belongings, Derek made his way up and down the east coast, working odd jobs and camping out most of the time. Eventually he moved to Havre and enrolled in the welding program at MSU-Northern, where he met his wife. They now live there and have a beautiful daughter. Derek is currently working on a second poetry collection in addition to a short story collection.
