What: Earth Day Celebration and Georgia Review Spring Issue Release Party
When: Wednesday April 18 at 7 p.m.
Where: Day Chapel of the State Botanical Garden at 2450 South Milledge Avenue, Athens
Natasha Trethewey, winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for poetry and a graduate of the University of Georgia, will read poems and prose at the fourth annual Georgia Review Earth Day program in the Day Chapel of the State Botanical Garden. Trethewey’s latest book is a prose work, Beyond Katrina: A Meditation on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, published by the University of Georgia Press in 2010. She will read from this personal study of the environmental devastation brought to her home state by Hurricane Katrina, and she will read a selection of poems as well.
The reading will be followed by a patio reception featuring music by the Athens duo Hawk Proof Rooster — aka Charlie and Nancy Hartness.
The event is free and open to the public.
