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.
