Tracy K. Smith, the winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, will read from her work, answer questions and sign books Monday evening as this year’s Florie Gale Arons Poet at Tulane University.
“Through the Arons endowment, we bring a distinguished female poet to campus every fall, and we are thrilled to have Tracy K. Smith coming this year,” said Laura Wolford, assistant director for programs and administration at the Newcomb College Institute. “We invited her, because she is a young, award-winning poet whose work merits careful reading.”
The event is free and open to the public. Smith’s reading will take place at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 29, in Tulane’s Freeman Auditorium at the Woldenberg Art Center.
