Felix announces fall readings


The Friends of Memorial Library and FELIX: A Series of New Writing will host poet Ed Roberson Thursday, Sept 17 (4:30 p.m., Rm. 126 Memorial Library). Roberson is described in the American Book Review as “one of those deeply skilled poets . . . who have worked far outside that matrix of professional critics and reviewers where literary reputations are determined.” In March 2008, Roberson won the Shelley Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America. Roberson’s sixth volume of poetry, The New Wing of the Labyrinth, will be published later this year.
