Thanks to the generous support of Black Studies and Women's Studies, we're
delighted to host the wonderful emerging poet, Camille Rankine, for a
poetry reading from her acclaimed debut collection, *Incorrect Merciful
Impulses *(Copper Canyon Press, 2016)*. *She has been heralded by
*Library* *Journal
*as a "poet to watch" which praised how her "clear, elegant lines reveal
someone with light and fight."

Thursday 14th April, 6pm
Doty Tower Room (Doty 300)
A signing will follow, with books available for purchase thanks to Barnes &
Noble.

At 4.30-5.30 p.m. the same day, in Welles 138, Rankine will host a
meet-and-greet to talk about VIDA: Women in Literary Arts, an organization
aimed at achieving "further transparency around gender equality issues in
contemporary literary culture." Students at Geneseo have volunteered for
and completed internships at VIDA, and this is a chance to find out more
from someone who's involved closely: Camille is on the Executive Board,
responsible for Membership.

of English, at smithlj at geneseo.edu
