Celebrate National Poetry Month with Sarah Rose Nordgren!

Sarah Rose Nordgren will read and discuss her poetry at the Gardner-Harvey Library on Wednesday, April 1, from 4:00pm-5:00pm.

Sarah, a Visiting Assistant Professor of English on the Middletown campus, is a widely-published poet. Her poetry collection Best Bones was published in 2014 by the University of Pittsburgh Press and was the winner of the Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize.

The poems of Best Bones allude to landscapes of history, fable, and childhood myth, yet are fraught with modern day predicaments that create an atmosphere at once familiar and strange, playful and haunted, and verging on disaster. With imaginative intelligence, Nordgren maintains a snow-globe control of the whole scene.

Please join us for the reading.  Light refreshments will be served.
