Wick Poetry Centerâ€™s annual reading series will feature award-winning poet Ruth Schwartz on October 30 at 7:30 p.m. in Room 306 ABC of the Kent Student Center. Schwartz will also hold an informal Question & Answer session on October 29 at 2:15 p.m. in the Wick Poetry Corner.
â€œWe are very excited to bring Ruth Schwartz to Kent State to read from her new book, Miraculum, released this fall,â€ says Jessica Jewell, Wick Poetry Center program coordinator. â€œA National Poetry Series winner, Schwartz's generous and musical poems explore levels of consciousness and healing.â€
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 Editorâ€™s Awards and the New Letters Prize for Poetry.
Both events are free and open to the public.
