Dorothea Benton Frank Writing Series Presents Natasha Trethewey
On Thursday, March 31, Natasha Trethewey will give a reading at the College of Charleston for the Dorothea Benton Frank Writing Series, an event made possible by a generous gift from the Frank family. Trethewey served two terms as the 19th Poet Laureate of the United States and is the author of Native Guard, for which she won the Pulitzer Prize. She is also the author of Domestic Work, which was selected by Rita Dove as the winner of the inaugural Cave Canem Poetry Prize; Bellocq’s Ophelia, named a Notable Book for 2003 by the American Library Association; Thrall; and Monument, which was longlisted for the 2018 National Book Award. Her most recent book is Memorial Drive, a memoir. The event will begin at 7 p.m. at the College of Charleston in Randolph Hall, Alumni Memorial Auditorium.
