Author's Bio

Steven Schroeder is a poet and visual artist who spent many years moonlighting as a philosophy professor — most often in interdisciplinary settings, most recently at the University of Chicago Graham School. He grew up in the Texas Panhandle, where he first learned to take nothing seriously, and his poetry and visual art continue to be rooted in the experience of the Plains.
