Join us for a poetry reading from The Needle, the newest collection of work by critically acclaimed poet Jennifer Grotz. Refreshments will be provided. Free and open to the public. 

Jennifer Grotz is a critically acclaimed poet and Associate Professor of English at the University of Rochester.

Her newest book of poems, called The Needle, grapples with poetic traditions in both Poland and America during the twentieth-century. NPR named it one of the best five books of poetry published in 2011. 

The Washington Post praised The Needle and Grotz in their review of the book: “Where many writers look inward and mine their private landscapes, Grotz sees the objects and scenes around her… . Attentiveness brings her poems—and the world—alive.”
