Event Details

 

Exploring the pre-Columbian and frontier history of the commonwealth, The Land We Dreamed is the final installment in the poet’s trilogy on rural Kentucky. The poems in the book feature several well-known figures and their stories, reimagining Dr. Thomas Walker’s naming of the Cumberland Plateau, Mary Draper Ingles’s treacherous journey from Big Bone Lick to western Virginia following her abduction by Native Americans, and Daniel Boone’s ruminations on the fall season of 1770. Survant also explores the Bluegrass from the perspectives of the chiefs of the Shawnee and Seneca tribes.

Joe Survant is the author of We Will All Be Changed; Anne and Alpheus, 1842–1882; Rafting Rise; and The Presence of Snow in the Tropics. His poetry has appeared in Prairie Schooner, the American Voice, Chelsea, Poet and Critic, Stand Magazine (U.K.), the Columbia Review, Cincinnati Poetry Review, Nimrod, Hellas, Exquisite Corpse, and the Sow's Ear Poetry Review. He served as Kentucky’s Poet Laureate from 2003 to 2004 and resides in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
