Visiting Poet – April 17 at 12:30

Poet Jennifer Grotz will present a poetry reading on Monday, April 17 at 12:30 in T102.

Ms. Grotz is the author of three books of poetry, most recently Window Left Open. Also a translator from the French and Polish, her most recent translation is Rochester Knockings, a novel by Tunisian-born writer Hubert Haddad. Her poems, reviews, and translations have appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry, The Nation, The New Republic, New York Review of Books, Ploughshares, New England Review, and in four volumes of the Best American Poetry anthology. Director of the Bread Loaf Translators’ Conference and assistant director of the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, she teaches at the University of Rochester.

Faculty, staff and students are invited to come and experience the beauty and joy of poetry as can be heard in the closing lines of Ms. Grotz’s poem “They Come the Way Flowers Do”

“When it spreads its wings its back reveals
ecstatic blue, and when a dozen that waited like pebbles
for your approach alight, it is the opposite of snowfall,
butterflies hardly conjures how the world is snowing sky.”

This event is sponsored by the Creative Writing Club.
