Jorie Graham at "Poetries of the Stranger"

Jorie Graham read at the international poetry festival "Poetries of the Stranger" during the evening devoted to "Strange Image," along with Henri Cole and Mark Strand (April 18, 2009).   The festival, created by Richard Kearney and held at Boston College, treats the theme of hospitality to the stranger.  

This has been quite an eventful month for Graham.  On April 13, 2009 she was voted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters. The induction and award ceremony will take place on May 20, 2009.
