Poet Sharon Bryan at Valparaiso University

6 Sep

While off topic, I’d like to plug an upcoming reading at Valparaiso University by poet and essayist Sharon Bryan. Bryan’s reading is part of Valpo’s Wordfest, which sponsors literary events throughout the year. The reading is at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, September 14th, in the Mueller Hall Commons. Here’s a campus map.

Here’s a little info about the poet:

“Sharon Bryan is a nationally recognized award-winning poet and editor. Her most recent collection, Sharp Stars (BOA, 2009), was awarded the Isabella Gardner Poetry Award for 2009. She is also the recipient of the Academy of American Poets Prize, the Discovery Prize awarded by The Nation, and two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as other literary prizes. She has published three previous poetry collections, Salt Air and Objects of Affection, both with Wesleyan University Press, and Flying Blind with Sarabande Books. She is the co-editor of Planet on the Table: Poets on the Reading Life (Sarabande), and the editor of Where We Stand: Women Poets on Literary Tradition (Norton). Additionally, she has held positions as poet-in-residence and visiting professor at more than 20 colleges and universities, and is currently the Visiting Professor of Poetry at the University of Connecticut at Storrs, in Storrs, Connecticut.”

Note: changed location of reading.
