MLK Commemorative Presentation 2014
Wed, 02/05/2014 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Johnson Theater, Paul Creative Arts Center
NOTE: Due to weather cancellation, this event is being rescheduled to take place in February 2015
U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey will deliver a commemorative presentation. Ms Trethewey's presentation provides new experiences and viewpoints on difference. She is the author of four collections of poetry, Domestic Work; Bellocq's Ophelia; Native Guard (for which she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize) and her most recent book Thrall, a collection of poems that explore the historical, cultural and social forces that determine the roles consigned to a mixed race daughter and her white father. She is also the author of the prose work Beyond Katrina: A Meditation on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
A book signing with Natasha Trethewey will take place immediate following the MLK Presentation in the Art Gallery at PCAC. All are welcome to attend.
