Garrison Keillor will read Chad Sweeney's poem on the Writer's Almanac on NPR this Halloween Sunday. The poem is "The Methodist and His Method" from the new book Parable of Hide and Seek.
Also Chad has just won a Travel Grant from WMU to support his book tour and readings from Farsi translations at the ALTA translators conference in Philadelphia. His cotranslation of the Iranian poet H.E. Seyeh's Selected Poems 1946-2000 will be published by White Pine Press next year.
