Hoppenthaler wins Brockman-Campbell Award

John Hoppenthaler has won the 2016 Brockman-Campbell Award for the best book of poetry by a North Carolinian in 2015 for his volume Domestic Garden (Carnegie Mellon UP). In this, his third collection of poetry, Hoppenthaler surveils the remnants of an American Dream. What devotion might mean and look like in our time is at the book’s heart. The poems, written in a variety of styles, offer testimony and uncover, row by row, what remains viable in a garden they hope to resurrect.
