Jesse Nathan has been writing and publishing poetry for years, but his first book of poetry has just been released, and he’ll be introducing it at Bethel College.
Nathan will speak in convocation Sept. 18 at 11 a.m. The public is invited; the venue is Krehbiel Auditorium in Luyken Fine Arts Center.
Nathan was born in Berkeley, Calif., and now lives in Oakland and teaches poetry and literature at the University of California, Berkeley. However, he grew up in rural McPherson County, where his parents still live, and graduated from Bethel College in 2005.
