Monday is originally from Clairfield, Tennessee, a small Appalachian town on the Kentucky border. He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Tennessee, and obtained his doctorate from Northcentral University.
Among his published works: a chapbook, “All American Girls and Other Poems,” was published in July 2014 and Aldrich Press published his book, “Empty Houses and American Renditions,” in May 2015.
A Kindle chapbook, “Narcissus the Sorcerer,” was published in June 2015 by Odin Hill Press, and an e-book, “Bergman’s Island & Other Poems,” was published by “Poetry Repairs” in 2017.
In much of his poetry, “an exploration of time occurs again and again as a theme, especially in my book ‘Empty Houses and American Renditions,’” Monday said.
His humanities textbook, dealing with topics ranging from literature to law, politics and religion, was published by Kendall/Hunt in 2018 and spans the Paleolithic period – popularly called the Stone Age – to the 14th Century Renaissance.
Monday is working on the second volume of his humanities text, and he has two complete poetry collections that have not been published yet.
The college’s literary readings series is organized by assistant professor DeAnna Stephens.
