Second Annual Judith O’Connell Hoyer Poetry Reading
This event occurred on Thursday, April 7th at the Student Center, the Blue Lounge at 2:30 (Worcester State University)
Marge Piercy has written 17 novels including The New York Times bestseller Gone to Soldiers; the national bestsellers Braided Lives and The Longings of Women; and the classics Woman on the Edge of Time and He, She and It; 19 volumes of poetry including The Hunger Moon: New & Selected Poems 1980-2010, The Crooked Inheritance, and in spring 2015, Made in Detroit; and a critically acclaimed memoir Sleeping with Cats. Born in center city Detroit, educated at the University of Michigan and Northwestern University, Piercy is the recipient of four honorary doctorates and an active advocate in antiwar, feminist, and environmental causes. The reading, which was free and open to the public, was generously supported by the Worcester State Foundation’s Judith O’Connell Hoyer ‘65 Poetry Series Fund, Worcester State University’s Theme Semester, English Department, Women’s Studies Program, Honors Program, Alumni Association, and the Worcester County Poetry Association.
