An Evening with Poet/Physician Dr. Charles Bardes

Join 2018 New Georgia Arts Literary Achievement Award recipient Charles Bardes for a remarkable evening of poetry.

The New Georgia award supports Charles with residencies at AIR Serenbe and Newnan Art Rez and a $10,000 prize. Funding for this award, one of the largest in the American South, comes from the School of the Arts at the University of West Georgia, the Blackwell Trust, and the Warren and Ava Sewell Foundation.

Additional support for this public event provided by Community Care Network and Inn at Serenbe.

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Charles Bardes is a practicing physician whose most recent book, Diary of Our Fatal Illness (University of Chicago, Phoenix Poets, 2017) is an extended prose poem that narrates an aged man’s illness and death. Other poems, essays, and ruminations have appeared in Agni, Great River Review, Literary Imagination, The New England Journal of Medicine, Ploughshares, Proto, Raritan, and scattered anthologies. Pale Faces: The Masks of Anemia (Bellevue Literary Press, 2008) is an extended lyric essay on the cultural and mythological underpinnings of a common disease construct.
