Event Description:

Phillips Exeter Academy's Class of 1945 Library continues its 2017–2018 Lamont Poetry Series with a reading by award-winning poet Gregory Pardlo.

Pardlo is the author of Totem, winner of the 2007 American Poetry Review / Honickman Prize, translator of Niels Lyngsoe’s, Pencil of Rays and Spiked Mace (Bookthug, 2004), and Digest, winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. The Pulitzer judges cited Pardlo’s “clear-voiced poems that bring readers the news from 21st Century America, rich with thought, ideas and histories public and private.”  His poems have appeared in American Poetry Review, Boston Review, The Nation, Ploughshares, Tin House, Best American Poetry, as well as anthologies including Angles of Ascent: A Norton Anthology of Contemporary African American Poetry. A memoir and collection of essays, Air Traffic, is forthcoming from Knopf.

Gregory Pardlo’s honors include fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts. He has received further fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, the New York Times, the Lotos Club Foundation and Cave Canem. In addition, Pardlo serves as an Associate Editor of Callaloo, Poetry Editor of VQR and is a facilitator of the Callaloo Creative Writing Workshop. Currently Pardlo teaches in the Rutgers University-Camden MFA Program.

The reading will be held in the Assembly Hall, located on the second floor of the Academy Building on Front Street. The event is free and open to the public.
