Join James Arthur and Salisbury area poets for a poetry reading, Thursday, August 23 from 4:30-6:00 pm. We'll meet in the Social Room in Holloway Hall to appreciate the works of fellow poets, capped off with poems from visiting poet James Arthur. 

 Arthur’s poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The New Republic and Poetry, among others. His honors include Princeton University’s Hodder Fellowship, Stanford University’s Stegner Fellowship, the Amy Lowell Traveling Poetry Scholarship and the Discovery/The Nation Prize. His debut poetry collection, Charms Against Lightning, is available from Copper Canyon Press.
