Event Details

Presented by The University of Tampa College of Arts and Letters at UT – Vaughn Center, Tampa FL

On Wednesday, March 6, The University of Tampa will welcome poet Mario Chard, who will read from his debut collection, Land of Fire. The event, part of the University’s Honors Program symposia series, begins at 4 p.m. in the Trustees Board Room on the ninth floor of the Vaughn Center and is free and open to the public.

Chard’s poetry collection, Land of Fire, follows three entangled strands — a contemporary immigrant story, echoes of the Fall in Paradise Lost and meditations on fatherhood in the shadow of Abraham’s command to sacrifice a son. The collection won the 2016 Dorset Prize from Tupelo Press and was named A 2018 Notable Debut by Poets & Writers Magazine.
