C.D. Wright was born in the Ozark Mountains, experimenting with saxophone, mime, and ballet, until she settled upon poetry.  Since then, she has won a MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship and co-run a press with her poet husband for 20 years.  She's written over a dozen books, and co-authored a project documenting Louisiana inmates. She joins us for an in-depth look at poetry and the world around us.

Poet C.D. Wright speaks on Wednesday, April 20, at 7 p.m. at UNLV's Student Union Theater.  The event is hosted by UNLV's Black Mountain Institute.
