Each term, a poet visits the college for a reading followed by a question-and-answer session. The spirit of the events is relaxed and informal. Entry is free, and the series is open to members of the university and to the public. The next reading in the series will be by Alice Notley.

Alice Notley is the author of more than 40 books of poetry. She has been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and winner of the Griffin International Poetry Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Award for Poetry. In the spring of 2001 she received an Academy Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Poetry Society of America’s Shelley Memorial Award. She edited and wrote a new introduction to her late husband Ted Berrigan’s The Sonnets (Penguin, 2000), as well as editing, with her sons, The Collected Poems of Ted Berrigan (2007). Last year she published Runes and ChordsThe Speak Angel Series and Early Works, and Telling the Truth as It Comes Up: Selected Talks & Essays 1991-2018.
