Poet Aldon Nielsen Reads from Tray
Bacon Hall 115
Dr. Aldon Nielsen (pictured), George and Barbara Kelly Professor of American Literature at Penn State, will read from his latest book of poetry, Tray (Make New Books, 2018).

The reading and Q & A session offer an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members to learn more about the origins of the Black Lives Matter movement, its continuing influence over present-day political movements, and its transformation through creative forums like poetry.
