Grossberg closes Writers-in-Residence season

Historic City News has learned that poet Benjamin Grossberg will wrap up the Writers-in-Residence 2008-2009 season with his reading on April 15th according to Liz Daube, Flagler College Media Specialist.

Grossberg will speak at 7:00 p.m. in the Gamache-Koger Theater.

The Ohio native won the 2008 Tampa Review Prize for Poetry for his manuscript, “Sweet Core Orchard.” Tampa Review judges praised Grossberg’s book for its “brilliant lyrical and thematic arcs, rich use of archetype and symbol, and heartening honesty.”

His first book, “Underwater Lengths in a Single Breath,” won the 2005 Snyder Prize. It received high praise from poets and critics. Grossberg’s poems have also widely appeared in literary journals, including Paris Review, Southwest Review and North American Review, and in “The Pushcart Book of Poetry: The Best Poems from the First 30 Years of the Pushcart Prize.”

The schedule for the 2009-2010 Writers-in-Residence season will be announced this fall.

The Gamache-Koger Theater is located inside the Ringhaver Student Center, 50 Sevilla St.

These events are free and open to the public, but seating is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis.
