Special National Poetry Month Celebration at Collin College with Pulitzer Prize-Winning Poet and Former Poet Laureate of the United States, Natasha Trethewey
An Evening with Natasha Trethewey - Poetry Reading, Q&A, and Book Signing.
Pulitzer Prize-winner Natasha Trethewey served two terms as the 19th Poet Laureate of the United States (2012-2014). James Billington wrote, “Her poems dig beneath the surface of history—personal or communal, from childhood or from a century ago—to explore the human struggles that we all face.” Trethewey was the first Southerner to receive the honor since Robert Penn Warren, in 1986, and the first African-American since Rita Dove, in 1993.
Refreshments will be served and books will be available for purchase.
