LEFT COAST WRITERS BOOK LAUNCH: Dave Seter, author of Night Duty
National Poetry Month gives us an opportunity to celebrate another new poet!
Born in Chicago, the author has lived on both coasts, and currently resides in Sonoma County. He studied creative writing at Princeton University, where he earned his degree in civil engineering. The title poem of the collection was inspired by the author’s first job out of college. As a field engineer, he responded to gas fires and explosions after hours, in the urban center of Newark, New Jersey. The author explains, “That’s where I saw the underworld leak with flame, and where I learned the only ‘boss’ I could stand was Bruce Springsteen.”
This chapbook is the author’s first published collection of poetry.
