Norwich University will host

Norwich University will host a public reading by award-winning Vermont poet Major Jackson on Wednesday, April 17, at 7 p.m. in the Kreitzberg Library Multipurpose Room. Jackson’s reading will be followed by a book signing and Q&A session. Jackson is the author of three books of poetry, “Holding Company,” and “Hoops,” (both finalists for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literature-Poetry) and “Leaving Saturn,” which won the 2001 Cave Canem Poetry Prize and was a finalist for a National Book Critics Award Circle. “Those who come to listen to Major Jackson will be hearing one of the biggest names in American poetry,” said Norwich creative writing Prof. Sean Prentiss. “If there is a place to publish, he’s probably published there. If there is an award, he’s probably been a finalist. This is a must-see reading; Major Jackson will not disappoint.” This is the third event in the inaugural 2013 Writers Series, presented by the College of Liberal Arts and the Department of English & Communications. All events in this series are free and open to the public.
