This year — 2013 — marks what would have been May Swenson’s 100th birthday. To commemorate the occasion, USU scholars organized a centennial celebration in Swenson’s honor, including a series of poetry readings and master classes.

 

The next activity in the celebration is Tuesday, April 9, and features a poetry reading by three Pocatello, Idaho, poets. The featured guests include Susan Goslee, Jen Hawkins and Bethany Schultz Hurst who have written in response to Swenson’s work. Their session begins at noon and run until 1:30 p.m. in the Merrill-Cazier Library, Room 101.


The reading is free and open to everyone.

 

The culminating event of the May Swenson Centennial Celebration is Thursday, April 25, with a poetry reading event that features Garrison Keillor — the voice and creator of public radio’s A Prairie Home Companion — and Utah’s former poet laureate Katharine Coles.

 

The reading takes place in the Morgan Theatre of the Chase Fine Arts Center and begins at 7 p.m. It is free by seating vouchers are required and become available April 1 through the Caine College of the Arts Box Office, Chase Fine Arts Center, room 139-B.
