Award-winning poet and Iraq War Veteran Brian Turner visited College of the Canyons to share some poems and stories with students and teachers at Hasley Hall Theater.
Turner spent seven years in the Army with multiple deployments including one year as infantry team leader in Iraq.
He is the author of “Here, Bullet” and “Phantom Noise” which features many personal stories and poems from his experiences throughout his military career.
“I’ve read at many colleges, local reading groups, bookstores, festivals, and even overseas,” said Turner. “I’ve been fortunate to share many of my poems to many people and hope that they resonate with them through my experiences.”
Turner is also a professor and the director of M.F.A. in creative writing for Sierra Nevada College hoping to pass on and teach the upcoming future writers and poets.
