Poetry Reading by Susan Miller

This event is hosted by the Women's Poetry Initiative and the Department of English at St. Francis College. Susan Miller, two-time winner of the Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Prize for Poetry, will be reading from her new collection Communion of Saints (Paraclete Press, 2017). With a forward by Mark Doty and praise from poets such as Marie Ponsot, Paul Mariani, and Yehoshua November, Communion of Saints is a stunning, moving work divided into four sections - Faith, Hope, Love, Pax et Bonum - with the fourth section based on the life and legacy of St. Francis as well as Miller’s own pilgrimage to Assisi. The reading is free and open to the public, and will be followed by a reception.
