Dave Thomas: Reading and Signing

Join us for a reading and signing of David E. Thomas's new collection of poems and if you're lucky maybe some of the older poems as well!

DAVID E. THOMAS grew up on the Hi-Line in North-central Montana. He graduated from the University of Montana then found himself on the streets of San Francisco where he began his literary education. Economic realities drove him to work on railroad gangs, big construction projects like Libby Dam and other labor intensive jobs.  He has traveled in the United States, Mexico and Central America. He has published four books of poems, Fossil Fuel, Buck’s Last Wreck, The Hellgate Wind and Waterworks Hill. He has poems in the anthologies The Last Best Place and Poems across the Big Sky and New Poets of the American West and has published poems in Romania, Blue Collar Review, Cedilla 6, 7 and 8 and many other small magazines.  His essay “Gothic Days” appears in The Complete Montana Gothic edited by Peter Koch which also features Thomas’s earliest published work. Most recently he has published poems and an interview in Talking River and poems in San Pedro River Review. He currently lives in Missoula, Montana.
