This event continues to be free and open to the public.

Marygrove's English and Modern Languages Department is pleased to announce that the award-winning poet and literary scholar Harryette Mullen, will be the twenty-third guest in its Contemporary American Authors Lecture Series. Professor Mullen will deliver the Lillian and Don Bauder Lecture in Alumnae Hall at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 15, 2011.

The author of five books of poetry, Mullen has taught at Cornell University and now teaches creative writing and African-American literature at the University of California, Los Angeles. She received the Gertrude Stein Award in Innovative American Poetry, a PEN Beyond Margins Award, and the 2010 Jackson Poetry Prize, and she was a finalist for the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award.

Her innovative poems challenge us to rethink our ideas about gender, race, language, politics, and popular culture by engaging in wordplay: puns, jokes, acrostics, and anagrams. As Carol Muske-Dukes says, Mullen's poetry is "a little like the Muse playing scrabble."

Marygrove thanks the sponsors of the 2011 Contemporary American Authors Lecture:
