She is the author of four collections of poetry and won the Pulitzer Prize for Native Guard about one of the first black regiments in the Civil War.

Ms. Trethewey is the author of Domestic Work, Bellocq’s Ophelia, and the prose book, Beyond Katrina: A Meditation of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. A memoir is forthcoming in 2013. Ms. Trethewey is a professor of creative writing at Emory University. This event is free and open to the public; however, online registration is required.
