Description
Due to illness, Christian Wiman has canceled his appearance. Poet Li-Young Lee will now join Pattiann Rogers for the event.

Li-Young Lee is the author of four critically acclaimed books of poetry, his most recent being "Behind My Eyes" (W.W. Norton, 2008) and a memoir, "The Winged Seed: A Remembrance" (Simon and Schuster, 1995), which received an American Book Award.

Rogers has published 12 collections of poetry, most recently "Holy Heathen Rhapsody," and two books of essays, including "The Grand Array: Writings on Nature, Science, and Spirit." Rogers is the recipient of two NEA grants, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a 2005 Literary Award in Poetry from the Lannan Foundation.

Reading followed by book signing and reception.

Since its start in 2003, Fall Arts Celebration has featured some of the preeminent writers, poets, musicians, dancers, artists and scholars of our time. The tradition continues in 2013 with signature events that aim to broaden horizons, help make sense of the new and unfamiliar, reflect on the past and be charmed by the classics.

All Fall Arts Celebration events are open to the public with free admission. Seating is limited for these popular performances. For more information, visit www.gvsu.edu/fallarts, or call (616) 331-2185.
