UT English Dept. Presents: Welsh Poet Gwyneth Lewis

Gwyneth Lewis reading

Tue, September 30, 2014 • 5:00 PM • UFCU Commons Room, PCl


Gwyneth Lewis, Wales's leading poet and former national poet laureate, will be reading her own poetry in the PCL's UFCU Commons Room at 5:00. This is a rare American appearance by this Welsh poet (whose work is in English, although she knows Welsh). Her most recent work is a book-length poem called A Hospital Odyssey, which comes out of her residency at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff. She has also written an important prose work called Sunbathing in the Rain: A Cheerful Book about Depression. The reading is free and open to the public.
