Dr. Paul Brooke to Publish New Book

December 5, 2017

Dr. Paul Brooke, Professor of English at Grand View, will publish a new book, Arm Wrestling at the Iowa State Fair: Poems Inspired by 382 Unusual Words, with Finishing Line Press in July 2018. This book of poems seeks to save many words that are falling out of use in the English language. Brooke will be taking a sabbatical in fall 2018 to write a new book, Jaguarland: The Jaguars of the Pantanal, that features the work of nearly 50 international wildlife photographers.
