Poet Phillips to read at Coastal Carolina University

  Poet Patrick Phillips  
Award-winning poet Patrick Phillips will read from his work at Coastal Carolina University on Tuesday, Oct. 21 at 4:30 p.m. in Wall Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

The reading is part of the Words to Say It Visiting Writers Series, which is supported by the University's Department of English.

Patrick Phillips' first book, "Chattahoochee," received the 2005 Kate Tufts Discovery Award, and his second collection, "Boy," was published by the University of Georgia Press in 2008. His poems have appeared in many magazines, including Poetry, Ploughshares, and American Poetry Review, and his translations of the Danish poet Henrik Nordbrandt received the Sjoberg Translation Prize. A past Fulbright Fellow, he has held fellowships at the MacDowell and Millay colonies. He lives in Brooklyn and teaches writing and literature at Drew University.

Phillips will sign his books during a small reception after the reading. His books will be available for sale following the presentation.
