Individual poets featured in the 2015-2016 Third Thursday series are represented in a broadside series. Each broadside (8” x 13”) contains a poem on fine quality paper illustrated by a graphic designer affiliated with Auburn University.
The series has been printed in a limited edition set of 75. The cost of $70 (for a set of all 8 broadsides) includes a portfolio to keep them in. The museum store also sells individual broadsides for $10 each. The series can also be bought online, here.
This is a collaborative project among the Third Thursday Poetry Series, Auburn University College of Architecture, Design and Construction/School of Industrial + Graphic Design, and Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art.

On Thursday, January 21, the Third Thursday Poetry Series features poet Richie Hofmann. His first collection of poems, Second Empire (Alice James Books, 2015), was winner of the Beatrice Hawley Award. The broadside inspired by Hofmann’s Imperial City is shown above.
The poetry program will begin at 6:30 with a brief open mic segment, and Hofmann’s reading will follow.
