Seat in the Shade

The fourth annual Seat in the Shade summer poetry reading series combines readings by published regional and national poets with those of UGA graduate students. The week-long event features a different professional poet each night: Collin Kelly on June 4, Melissa Hotchkiss on June 5, Jericho Brown on June 8, Tom Lombardo and Samuel Prestridge on June 9 and Ed Pavlic on June 10. During “Poetry By and For Educators: Readings from the Collective” on June 11, organizer Melissa Cahnmann-Taylor, a professor in the UGA College of Education’s department of language and literacy education, will share the stage with graduate students from her poetry class.
