Poet Jim Daniels to Visit Mount Union College Through Wolf Lecture Series

May 10, 2010

Poet Jim Daniels will visit Mount Union College as part of the Wolf Lecture Series and in celebration of National Poetry Month.

Daniels will be giving a presentation on Wednesday, April 17 at 7 p.m. in the Campus Grounds on "Working Poetry: Digger, Labor and Literature."

Daniels is the author of seven books of poems including "Places/Everyone," which won the Brittingham Prize for Poetry from the University of Wisconsin Press. His latest chapbooks include, "Black Vinyl, Red Vinyl," and "Digger's Blues." He has written books of stories and a screenplay. His awards include a National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellowship and two fellowships from the Pennsylvania Council on Arts. He has received a Pushcart Prize and was included in Best American Poetry 2000. He is a professor of English and directs the Creative Writing Program at Carnegie Mellon University.

Another speaker coming in April as a part of this series is Sandra Maria Esteves, a poet who presents literary programs throughout the United States. The date and time for this event will be announced at a later date.

These speakers are being presented through the Wolf Lecture Series, and the Mount Union College English Department, Liberal Studies Program, and Bookstore. The Eleanor Mincks Wolf Lecture was established by John L. Wolf of Medina in memory of his wife Eleanor. A 1939 graduate of Mount Union College, she was a former teacher of English and Latin in Richfield and Highland school districts.

The Campus Grounds are located in the Hoover-Price Campus Center. Jim Daniels' program is free, and the public is welcome to attend.
