Medaille's Write Thing Reading Series premieres on Thursday, October 20 as writer Kent Johnson comes to the Buffalo Campus at 7 p.m.

Johnson was raised in Montevideo, Uruguay, and he is an editor, translator, or writer of nearly thirty collections related to poetry, among them Beneath a Single Moon: Buddhism in Contemporary American Poetry (Shambhala, 1991) and Doubled Flowering: From the Notebooks of Araki Yasusada (Roof Books, 1998).

In fall 2012, his book A Question Mark above the Sun: Documents on the Mystery Surrounding a Famous Poem by Frank O Hara will be republished by Starcherone Books, which is founded and led by professor Ted Pelton, Ph.D. His awards include an NEA Literature Fellowship, and the Illinois Community College Trustees Association Outstanding Faculty Member in 2004.

According to Dr. Pelton, "This brief bio in no way accounts for the controversy Johnson has brought to poetry with his radical ideas about authorship and experimentation."

All Write Thing Reading Series events are held in the Main Building, Fourth Floor Academic Commons. More information and details about the next events in the series in 2012

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
