Poet Peter Makuck at BYU Reading Series March 28

Award-winning poet Peter Makuck will read from his work on Friday (March 28) at noon in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium at Brigham Young University.

Makuck is a professor of arts and sciences at East Carolina University. His campus appearance is part of the weekly English Department Reading Series.

"I will read 'Simple Misalignment,' one of the shorter stories from my new collection, 'Costly Habits,'" Makuck said. "It is a poem about health fanatics and has some humorous moments."

Makuck lives on one of North Carolina's barrier islands and will also read some of his poems with coastal settings, which he said he feels represent some of his best work.

He has published five collections of poems and two story collections. He is also co-editor of "An Open World," which includes essays about BYU professor Leslie Norris.

Some of his awards include the International Poetry Forum's 1993 Charity Randall Citation and the East Carolina University Distinguished Professor of Arts and Sciences.

The English Department's Reading Series is designed to give students and faculty exposure to international contemporary writers while providing a forum for local writers to share and discuss their works. For more information, contact Paia Palmer at (801) 422-4939.

For years now, 10,000 steps a day has become the gold standard for people trying to improve their health — and recent research shows some benefits can come from even just 7,500 steps. But if you’re trying to prevent weight gain, a new Brigham Young University study suggests no number of steps alone will do the trick.
