Start Date: 4/16/2019Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 4/16/2019End Time: 9:00 PM
Event Description:
Pulitzer Prize-winner Natasha Trethewey served two terms as the 19th Poet Laureate of the United State (2012-2014). James Billington once wrote, "Her poems dig beneath the surface of history - personal or communal, from childhood or from a century ago - to explore the human struggles we all face." Trethewey was the first Southerner to receive the honor since Robert Penn Warren, in 1986, and the first African-American since Rita Dove, in 1993. "Trethewey has a genuine gift for verse forms, and the depth of her engagement in language marks her as a true poet" - Washington Post
