Please join us on Thursday, April 20, from 4-5:30 p.m. in Speakers’ Corner, Falvey Library, for a special event in honor of National Poetry Month.
The event will kick off with an official launch and introduction of the Library exhibit titled “Poetic License: Seven Curators’ Poetry Selections from Distinctive Collections.” In this exhibit 7 curators (Beaudry Allen, Michael Foight, Demian Katz, Rebecca Oviedo, Megan Piorko, Christoforos Sassaris, Mike Sgier) have identified poems from Falvey Library’s Distinctive Collections that moved them to share with others. Each curator has had “poetic license” to select and curate an individual exhibit case or shelf of poetry–and then–author a text to tell a tale about their choices.
Following the exhibit launch, there will be an opportunity for faculty, staff, students and friends to participate in an open mic reading. All are invited to bring a favorite piece of poetry or creative writing to share!
This ACS-approved event, co-sponsored by Falvey Library, Creative Writing Program, and the Department of English, is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
