Wilton Library: Winter Poetry with Judson Scruton: Louise Glück’s Journey to the 2020 Nobel Prize in Literature
February 18, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
Judson Scruton will lead a 4-part series using selected poems from Nobel Prize-winner Louise Glück’s remarkable twelve books of poetry. Judson Scruton M.A (The Johns Hopkins University, The Writing Seminars, specializing in poetry) has taught creative writing and literature at prep schools and universities. In the words of the 2015 National Endowment for the Humanities award, Glück’s works have given “lyrical expression to our inner conflicts. Her use of verse connects us to the myths of the ancients, the magic of the natural world, and the essence of who we are.” Poetry packets will be emailed in advance. No charge for the program. This seminar is made possible with the support of the Literary Series in Memory of Amy Quigley. Register online in order to receive the readings and the Zoom session invitation links. By registering for the first session, attendees will automatically be registered for all four sessions. Please email Michael Bellacosa with any questions.
