PLYMOUTH — Rosanna Warren, a former chancellor of the Academy of American Poets, and a Lamont Poetry Selection writer, will read from her poetry at 7 p.m. April 1 in the Smith Recital Hall at the Silver Center for the Arts. Writer and literary critic Harold Bloom said Warren is "an important poet … beyond the achievement of all but a double handful of living American poets."

Warren is the author of four collections: Each Leaf Shines Separate, Stained Glass, Departure and her latest, Ghost in a Red Hat (2011). She has won the Witter Bynner Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Lavan Younger Poets’ Prize from the Academy of American Poets.

Warren graduated from Yale University in 1976 with a degree in painting, and in 1980 earned a master of arts from The Writing Seminars at John Hopkins University. She is the Emma MacLachlan Metcalf Professor of the Humanities and a university professor at Boston University.

Warren’s reading is hosted by Plymouth State University’s Eagle Pond Authors Series. Now in its 14th 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 introduce Warren, and will join her for a reception and book signing afterward.

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).
