The La Roche College Literary Society invites the public to a free, on-campus series featuring live book readings, poetry recitations and an insider’s view into the world of filmmaking.

Considered one of the most enduring poets of our time, Samuel Hazo is the author of poetry, fiction, essays, various works of translation and four plays. The founder and director of the International Poetry Forum and McAnulty Distinguished Professor of English Emeritus of Duquesne University, he served as Pennsylvania’s first state poet from 1993-2003. Mr. Hazo will be reciting from “And the Time Is” and his newest collection musing on mortality and love, “They Rule the World.” The presentation will be followed by a book signing.
