The Humanities Institute is proud to welcome Jorie Graham, Boylston Professor of Poetry at Harvard, as our second Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence. Graham will be at USF the first week of April and will take part in two public events. On Tuesday, April 2, she will give a poetry reading at 6:00pm in the Patel Center for Global Solutions and on Thursday, April 4, she will answer questions on "Why Poetry Matters?" in the Marshall Student Center, room 2708 at 6:00pm. Both events are free, open to the public, and will be followed by a reception and book signing.
Graham's numerous awards include the Pulitzer Proze, MacArthur Fellowship, Lavan Award from the Academy of American Poets, and just became the first woman to one of the major poetry prizes in Britain, the 2012 Forward Prize for poetry, for her critically-acclaimed collection, PLACE.
We have ten readings and lectures scheduled for this year's NPM@USF. Visit our NPM website for more details.
