Once-a-decade Furious Flower conference dedicated to Rita Dove

The Furious Flower Poetry Center’s once-a-decade conference is dedicated this decade to Professor Rita Dove. This gathering of poets and scholars, held at James Madison University, features readings by many of the best established and emerging African American poets writing today—and all of these readings are free and open to the public. The conference began September 24 and continues through Saturday, September 28, with readings, open mics, lectures, and concerts.

More information about the conference and the full schedule of events can be found here: http://www.jmu.edu/events/furiousflower/2014/09/24-furious-flower-poetry....

On October 1, Professor Dove will be recording an NPR show about the conference at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities.
