Andrew Hudgins Kicks Off Georgia Poetry Circuit Series

American poet Andrew Hudgins appears at Brenau University on Wednesday, Nov. 13, for a poetry reading at 12:30 p.m. in Banks Recital Hall followed by a question and answer session at 3:30 p.m. in the Trustee Library Writing Center as the first Georgia Poetry Circuit event of the 2013-14 season.

Hudgins, who is a professor of English at Ohio State University, has published nine books of poetry, including Saints and Strangers, which was a finalist for the 1985 Pulitzer Prize, and The Never-Ending, a finalist for the 1991 National Book Award. After the Lost War, a series of dramatic monologues recounting the life of Georgia poet Sidney Lanier, won the Poet’s Prize in 1989.  

The Georgia Poetry Circuit is a consortium of ten Georgia colleges and universities, including Brenau University, working together to bring poets of national and international reputation to all members’ campuses, providing access to the literary arts for Georgia residents across the state.

This event is sponsored by the Georgia Poetry Circuit and Brenau University. For more information visit www.berry.edu/gpc or call the Brenau Department of Humanities at  770.534.6179.
