Gwendolyn Brooks Centennial
Oct 14, 2017, 5:30 pm
Gwendolyn Brooks was born on June 7, 1917, and spent most of her life on Chicago’s South Side, whose Bronzeville neighborhood she memorialized in her poetry. She was the first African American to receive the Pulitzer Prize, for 'Annie Allen' in 1950. At age 68, Brooks was the first black woman appointed Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress. Later she served as Poet Laureate of Illinois, personally funding literary awards for young writers and visiting grade schools, colleges, universities, prisons, hospitals, and drug rehabilitation centers
This reading of Miss Brooks' poems will include students, teachers, writers, and many other community members. This event is free and open to the public and will take place in our Wattis Dumke room. Refreshments will be served.
This event is part of the Utah Humanities Book Festival and was made possible with support from Utah Humanities and RAMP.
