Reading by Jericho Brown

Thursday, November 14, 7:00 pm

Highsmith Union, Blue Ridge Room


Jericho Brown is director of the Creative Writing Program at Emory University and author of three collections of poetry.  His latest publication, The Tradition, is available from Copper Canyon Press.  It was described in the New York Times Book Review as “poetry that is a catalog of injuries past and present, personal and national, in a country where blackness, particularly male blackness, is akin to illness.”  Brown’s other published works include The New Testament, which was named one of the best of the year by the American Academy of Poets, and Please, which received the 2009 American Book Award.

This event is free and open to the public.
