(One previous poetry event earlier in April has already taken place.)

Awad is a Lebanese-American poet, a 2021 NEA Poetry fellow, and the author of Set to Music a Wildfire, winner of the 2016 Michael Waters Poetry Prize and the 2018 Ohioana Book Award for Poetry. (Students who attend will be eligible to win a copy of her book.)
