Poet and professor Joshua Bennett will share original work from his first three collections of poems—The Sobbing School (Penguin, 2016), Owed (Penguin, 2020) and forthcoming The Study of Human Life (Penguin, 2022)— while also offering reflections on the art of storytelling, the history of Black poetic practice in the United States, and the future possibilities of the art forms that African Americans have created towards the end of imagining, and inaugurating, another world. In 2009 Professor Bennett was a featured poet at President Obama’s Evening of Poetry and Music at the White House. Joshua Bennett is the Mellon Assistant Professor of English at Dartmouth College.
