Join the English Department for this year’s event. Mischa Willett, Ph.D., Instructor of English, will read from his poetry.

Willett’s poems have been described by the poet Scott Cairns as working with “surprising linguistic brilliance to compose oratoria that brighten the hearts of readers,” and by the poet Kevin J. Craft as “rub[bing] shoulders with classical figures and Biblical traditions, stoics and shepherds and sleep-deprived poets, the better to place the old stories in a contemporary light.”
