Kunitz Medal Ceremony honoring Susan Roney-O’Brien

July 22, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us for this special event that honors Susan Roney-O’Brien with the WCPA’s Sixth Annual Stanley Kunitz Medal Award. Roney-O’Brien is the 2020 Kunitz Medal recipient. The author of five poetry collections, she curates a monthly poetry series, tutors international students, is part of a collaborative group of visual artists and poets, and works with aspiring writers.

The program will begin with a half-hour reading centered on the late Worcester-born Poet Laureate Stanley Kunitz. Then, Roney-O’Brien, the honoree, will have time to read and speak to what this award means to her.

The Stanley Kunitz Medal is presented annually to a person with a strong Worcester County connection who best exemplifies Stanley Kunitz’s life-long commitment to poetry and poets. The award recognizes the total commitment to poetry as Kunitz lived it: through teaching, mentoring, speaking, publishing, and supporting poets and poetry.
