In celebration of national poetry month, a poetry reading by David Wojahn will be held on Thursday, April 14, at 7 p.m., in Guerrieri Hall at Wor-Wic Community College on the corner of Route 50 and Walston Switch Road in Salisbury.

Wojahn’s latest poetry collection, “World Tree,” will be published this spring. He is also the author of “Spirit Cabinet,” “The Falling Hour,” “Late Empire,” “Mystery Train,” “Glassworks,” “Icehouse Lights” and “Interrogation Palace,” which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Wojahn is the recipient of four Pushcart Prizes, the William Carlos Williams Book Award, the Carole Weinstein Poetry Prize, the George Kent Memorial Prize and the O. B. Hardison Jr. Poetry Prize.

A professor of English at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Wojahn also teaches in the writing program at the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier.

A book signing and refreshments will follow the event, which is sponsored by Wor-Wic’s arts club and cultural diversity committee. The event was funded by a grant from the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council, which was awarded by the Maryland State Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
