Students Tyler Gobble (Left) and Cody Davis (Right) pose in Bracken after poetry reading

Last night, Ball State had the honor of being the first stop on Bloof Books‘ 2010 tour, and oh man, what a stop it was! Undergraduate student Cody Davis did a great job opening for the three poets. Jennifer L. Knox, Shanna Compton, and our own Peter Davis all exhibited unique voices and styles that reminded us that poetry can be fun. In their cases, wildly so.

In a stunning turn of events, Compton interviewed Cody Davis and Tyler Gobble, president of Writers Community and organizing aide for the reading, for The Best American Poetry‘s blog. This was a great opportunity for the two students and they earned it.

This reading marked the first of many events to come this year that will make BSU a truly exciting place to be. For a previous interview with Tyler Gobble on this blog and a look at the events to come, check out our post here.
