The USU Eastern English Department welcomes students and the general public to a reading with poet, Kate Kingston on Wednesday, March 20th at 7:30 pm in the JLSC Alumni Room on the USU Eastern campus.
Kate Kingston is the author of In My Dreams Neruda, El RГo de Las Animas Perdidas en Purgatorio, and Unwritten Letters. She is a recipient of the W.D. Snodgrass Award for Poetic Endeavor and Excellence, the Ruth Stone Prize, the Atlanta Review International Publication Prize, and the Colorado Council on the Arts Literary Fellowship in Poetry. Kingston has served as Language Department Chairperson at the College of Eastern Utah and Professor of Spanish and Writing at Trinidad State College. She currently lives and writes in Trinidad, Colorado.
вЂњHer poems . . . forge thrilling combinations from the colors, textures, and the objects of this world. They speak from the landscapes and voices of Spain and Old Mexico, which clearly have fed her imagination, but they offer, as well, glimpses of a contemporary American womanвЂ™s rites of passage. . .вЂќ
вЂ”Leslie Ullman, author of Slow Work through Sand
The reading is free, and we welcome members of the community to attend. An opportunity to meet and speak with Ms. Kingston will follow immediately after the reading. Refreshments will be served.
