Come celebrate a book talk and reading with guest poet Jane Satterfield in honor of National Poetry Month!

Jane Satterfield’s fourth book of poetry, Apocalypse Mix, was selected by David St. John for the 2017 Autumn House Poetry Prize. Satterfield is also the author of Her Familiars (Elixir, 2013) and two previous books of poetry—Assignation at Vanishing Point and Shepherdess with an Automatic—as well as Daughters of Empire: A Memoir of a Year in Britain and Beyond. Her honors include a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in poetry, the William Faulkner Society's Gold Medal for the Essay, the Florida Review Editors’ Prize in nonfiction, and the Mslexia women’s poetry prize. With Laurie Kruk, she is co-editor of the multigenre anthology Borderlands and Crossroads: Writing the Motherland (Demeter Press). A graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, she lives in Baltimore and teaches at Loyola University.

A book talk will take place from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and a poetry reading will take place from 7:00-8:00 p.m. This two-part celebration is free and open to the public; there is no need to RSVP for either event.

A book sale/signing will conclude this literary evening, which is sponsored by the Cultural Diversity Committee.
