  •  Thursday, Sept. 4; 6:30pm.  Public Reading and Talk by award winning poet  Carolyn Forché. 

    Poet, teacher and activist Carolyn Forché has put into poetry some of the most devastating events of twentieth-century world history. According to Joyce Carol Oates in the New York Times Book Review, Forché’s ability to wed the “political” with the “personal” places her in the company of such poets as Pablo Neruda, Philip Levine, and Denise Levertov.  Forché is perhaps best-known for coining the term “poetry of witness.” In her ground-breaking anthology, Against Forgetting: Twentieth-Century Poetry of Witness, Forché described the difficulties of politically-engaged poetry determine, the fragile realm of the individual.” She has been described as one of America’s most important and aware poetic voices. Co-sponsored by 49Writers Writing Center.
