Poetry Reading by Phillip Block

Thursday evening Phillip Block, a recent product of the DSU English program who is now a graduate student at The University of South Dakota, read from his poetry at the Vermillion Literary Project's monthly poetry reading and slam. Five professors and a student from DSU went down to see the show, and we weren't disappointed. Many good poets read, and Phillip did a fine job. Here's a recording of his poem "Nightmaring Under Red Stars" from that evening and a photo of some of us and Phillip standing. Adam Bruns served as an excellent judge for the poetry slam that followed the reading. It was a great time, and we survived the fog that enveloped us there and back.

Again, thank you for coming down. It was great to see you all. It was a good night for a slam, a good night for a reading.
