Pulitzer Prize-Winning Poet Jorie Graham at Plymouth State University April 30

PLYMOUTH — The Eagle Pond Authors' Series at Plymouth State University will present a free reading by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jorie Graham at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 30 in the Smith Recital Hall at the Silver Center for the Arts. The reading was rescheduled from February.
Graham is an extraordinary American artist whom The New Yorker calls "a mesmerizing voice." She is renowned for poetry that is startling, original and deeply relevant, and has been placed in the poetic lineage of such master as T.S. Eliot and John Ashbery.
In a new Eagle Pond Series tradition, Tyler Carignan, a senior PSU English major from Derry, New Hampshire, will open the program reading some of his own works.
Now in its 15th year, the Eagle Pond Authors' Series is a tribute to Donald Hall, one of the nation's most beloved poets and authors. Hall remains the heart and soul of this series and is instrumental in bringing nationally and internationally revered poets to the PSU campus.
Hall will be on hand to introduce Graham, and both will stay after the reading for an authors' reception and book signing, including Hall's latest publication, Christmas at Eagle Pond.
Free tickets for the Eagle Pond Authors' Series are available at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869, and are highly recommended. The series is presented with generous support from the Follett Higher Education Group (PSU Bookstore).
