Event Description:

The Program in Creative Writing and Translation is proud to welcome author Jennifer Grotz as our 2017-18 Walton Visiting Writer in Poetry. She will offer a free public reading of her work at 7pm, February 22, in the Graduate Education building auditorium on the U of A campus. 

Grotz has published three books of poetry, including Window Left Open. In addition, she translates from the French and Polish, most recently Rochester Knockings, a novel by Tunisian-born writer Hubert Haddad. Her poems, reviews, and translations have appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry, The Nation, The New Republic, New York Review of Books, and in four volumes of Best American Poetry. She directs the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conferences.

Each year, the Walton Visiting Writers series in the Program in Creative Writing and Translation brings esteemed authors in poetry, fiction, and literary translation to the U of A to give free public readings and to work with graduate students in the creative writing MFA program. Past Walton Writers include Natalie Diaz, Chris Abani, Caryl Phillips, Franz Wright, Esther Allen, and Karen Tei Yamashita.

This event is made possible by the Program in Creative Writing and Translation, the J. William Fulbright College of Arts & Sciences, the Department of English, and the Walton Family Foundation.
