Poetry Month at Immaculata University will feature a celebration of “Sense of Place,” readings by three local poets on Tuesday, April 2, at 7:30 p.m. in Loyola Hall on the University’s campus.
The evening will focus on the works of poets, all graduates of LaSalle University, who write about the Philadelphia neighborhoods in which they grew up. Each reader will bring his personal style to familiar themes.
Joseph A. Chelius was Bucks County Poet Laureate in 2000 and has published two chapbooks: Taking Pictures and Row House Yards. His first full-length collection is scheduled for publication later this year. David Livewell is returning to read at Immaculata. Since his last visit, his collection Shackamaxon has been published and been awarded the T.S. Eliot Poetry Prize. The third reader will be Eugene Halus, associate professor of Politics at Immaculata. His poems have appeared in a number of small journals and he was formerly the managing editor of Four Quarters Magazine.
The evening promises to entertain with familiar ideas about home and memory, and some new poetry as well. The program is open to everyone; there is no fee. For further information, contact Sister Marie Hubert Kealy, IHM, English Department, at 610-647-4400, ext. 3720 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
