Common Book Display

Common Book Perham Display
Originally uploaded by Pesky Library
Next Thursday, April 19th, the 2012 common book author Brittany Perham will be on campus. She will read her poems, talk about writing, and share her life as a poet and teacher.

We prepared this small display to highlight her poetry written while at Governor's.

Ms. Perham is not only a Governor's alum - she graduated in 1999 - but she holds degrees from Tufts University and from the University of Virginia. She has received awards from the Academy of American Poets and the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity, and she has twice been a finalist for the Ruth Lilly Poetry Fellowship given by POETRY. Currently Ms. Perham is a Jones Lecturer in Creative Writing at Stanford University, California.

From noon to 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, lunch will be provided in the Bragdon Reading Room in the library. Ms. Perham will be available for questions, conversation, and book signing. Everyone is invited!
