Pulitzer Prize-Winning Poet Jorie Graham at PSUApril 25. 2013 12:56PM
PLYMOUTH - Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jorie Graham will present a reading at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, in the Smith Recital Hall at the Silver Center for the Arts.
The program, which is part of the Eagle Pond Authors' Series on campus, was rescheduled from February.
Graham, who has published more than a dozen books of poetry, most recently released 2012's "Place." Through the work, Graham explores the ways in which imagination, intuition and experience aids people in navigating a world seemingly moving toward its own annihilation and a political reality in which people and their dignities are increasingly disposable, program officials said.
Tyler Carignan, a senior PSU English major from Derry, will open the program with a reading of some of his own works.
Now in its 15th year, the series is a tribute to Donald Hall, who will be on hand to introduce Graham. Both will stay after the reading for an authors' reception and book signing, including Hall's latest publication, "Christmas at Eagle Pond."
