As a result of a free public reading at the American Indian Resource Center in Bemidji by poet Terrance Hayes, more people in the region will be exposed to one of the most compelling voices in American literature and thereby increase their knowledge and awareness of how contemporary poetry can engage with American culture today. We will place anonymous surveys on the seats in the Gathering Room of the American Indian Resource Center for the reading by Terrance Hayes. Director Sean Hill will encourage all audience members to fill them out after the reading. The audience survey will include four short questions on half of a piece of paper with room for comments on the backside. The four questions can be answered using a scale of 0-5, thereby encouraging our audience to fill out the survey with minimum effort.
