Award-Winning Poet Jan-Henry Gray Welcomed to Campus!

flyerOn Friday, October 11, 2019 poet Jan-Henry Gray, author of the book Documents (BOA Editions, 2019) and winner of the 2019 A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize, will be the Learning Commons Poetry Corner Series featured poet for the month of October.

His visit represents the intersectionality of our campus on National Coming Out Day, Filipinx American History Month, and right before our Undocuweek. We are excited to welcome him to campus, and all are invited to attend two readings in the campus Library:

  1. From 9:10 a.m.-10:00 a.m., Jan-Henry Gray will read and share space with Janice Sapigao’s English 110 class. Janice Sapigao will facilitate with her students.
  2. From 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m., Jan-Henry Gray will read and discuss his work at length. Janice Sapigao will facilitate.

A tremendous thank you to the following organizers and everyone involved: Pia Walawalkar, Marisa Thigpen, Rob Williams, Alvin Gubatina, Ryan Samn, Liza Erpelo, and Chris Gibson.

Please take the time to read one of Gray’s poems here.
