Award-Winning Poet Ruth Schwartz Comes to Wick Poetry Center

Posted Oct. 18, 2012


Wick Poetry Center’s annual reading series will feature award-winning poet Ruth Schwartz on October 30 at 7:30 p.m. in Room 306 ABC of the Kent Student Center. Schwartz will also hold an informal Question & Answer session on October 29 at 2:15 p.m. in the Wick Poetry Corner.

“We are very excited to bring Ruth Schwartz to Kent State to read from her new book, Miraculum, released this fall,” says Jessica Jewell, Wick Poetry Center program coordinator. “A National Poetry Series winner, Schwartz's generous and musical poems explore levels of consciousness and healing.”

Schwartz has written four award-winning poetry books, most recently the 2004 Autumn House Poetry Prize recipient, Dear Good Naked Morning. Additionally, she has won more than a dozen national literary prizes, including two Chelsea Magazine Editor’s Awards and the New Letters Prize for Poetry.

Both events are free and open to the public.
