Celebrate National Poetry Month, April 2012!

The Goddard Library is pleased to be hosting a poetry program by Minnesota Poet Todd Boss, on Thursday evening, April 19 at 7:00 in CF206. This program is sponsored by Southeastern Libraries Cooperating and Southeast Library System, and made possible in part by funds from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Todd Boss has published two collections of his work, Yellowrocket (2008) and Pitch (2012). In 2009 Virginia Quarterly named Yellowrocket one of the ten best poetry books of the year, and awarded Todd the Emily Clark Balch Prize. Yellowrocket was also selected as the Midwest Bookseller Association's Honor Book for Poetry and was nominated for a Minnesota Book Award.

This event is free and open to the public. Please join us!
