Campus Read with Danez Smith

September 30, 2016 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT


Up-and-coming poet Danez Smith will be the featured artist for the 2016-17 Finlandia University Campus Read.

“Smith is one of the most visionary poets in America, and one of those most on fire for social justice.  It is so exciting to have them perform on our campus,” said Dr. Carolyn Dekker, assistant professor of English at Finlandia. “My students have been reading, watching and listening to Danez’s poetry for a year now, and this visit will bring that important work off the page and into the campus life.”

Smith is expected to be on campus on September 30 for a reading and book signing. Their books, [insert] boy and black movie, will be made available on campus at North Wind Books and Maki Library. Additional information will be posted on finlandia.edu/campusread in August.

Exact details on the event will be announced as the event gets closer.
