The Georgia Review will celebrate the launch of its spring 2019 issue May 31 with a reading and reception featuring poets Natasha Trethewey and Ama Codjoe.
Open free to the public, this event will take place in the Georgia Museum of Art auditorium at 7 p.m. with a reception to follow in the museum’s Grand Hall. Copies of Trethewey’s books and The Georgia Review will be available for purchase, and ASL interpretation will be provided. The reception will also include live music and light refreshments. Attendees may park for free in the UGA Performing Arts Complex deck.
A UGA alumna and the 19th Poet Laureate of the U.S, Trethewey was the final judge for The Georgia Review’s sixth annual Loraine Williams Poetry Prize competition in 2018, selecting Codjoe’s “Etymology of a Mood” as the winner of the $1,000 award. The poem is the lead piece in the spring 2019 issue of The Georgia Review.
