in the 2nd Air Division Memorial Library, Tuesday 16 April, 6.30-7.30pm

Stop               this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin     of all poems…                                  

Walt Whitman, “Song of Myself” 

We’re happy to say that our American poetry collection is growing significantly this spring! To celebrate, we are planning an evening event celebrating great American poems. We hope to recruit 6 or 7 doctoral students and Faculty members from UEA working in (or near) the field of American poetry to participate. Each will give a reading of a poem of his or her choice accompanied by a brief speech—aimed at a general audience—illustrating the selection.

Please contact Kate at for more information and to voice your interest in participating. If possible, please provide a short-list of poems you might choose. Anyone interested in “chairing” the evening by providing a rousing introduction and/or a reflective conclusion should also contact Kate.
