The final program in the Art of the Word series takes place on Tuesday, March 27, and features Birmingham resident Elizabeth Hughey. Elizabeth Hughey is the winner of the prestigious Iowa Poetry Prize for her poetry collection Sunday Houses: the Sunday House. Her “poems are made of the daily objects of our lives, but thrown into a kaleidoscope so what we are left with is a vital vision of the world.” (James Tate). She is a lecturer in the University Honors Program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The program is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. in the Arrington Auditorium at the Central Library.
The Art of the Word is part of the fifth anniversary celebration for the WORD UP! Student Poetry Slam. For more information on Art of the Word, call 226-3670 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
