Award-Winning Poet Ruth Schwartz Comes to Wick Poetry CenterPosted Oct. 15, 2012 | Michael Cellars
The Wick Poetry Center’s Reading Series welcomes award-winning poet Ruth Schwartz to Kent State University. She will be performing a reading of her new work on Oct. 30 at 7:30 p.m. in Room 306 ABC at the Kent Student Center.
“We are very excited to bring Ruth Schwartz to Kent State to read from her new book, Miraculum, released this fall,” says Jessica Jewell, Wick Poetry Center program coordinator. “A National Poetry Series winner, Schwartz's generous and musical poems explore levels of consciousness and healing.”
Schwartz has written four award-winning poetry books, most recently the 2004 Autumn House Poetry Prize recipient, Dear Good Naked Morning. Additionally, she has won more than a dozen national literary prizes, including two Chelsea Magazine Editor’s Awards and the New Letters Prize for Poetry.
