Poet Carl Phillips to help relaunch Modern Literature Reading Series

Acclaimed poet Carl Phillips will help relaunch the Modern Literature Reading Series at Washington University in St. Louis when he does a reading at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12.

Also reading at the event will be Catherine Chiodo and Philip Williams, candidates for the master of fine arts degree in poetry at WUSTL.

The event, which is sponsored by Washington University Libraries’ Department of Special Collections and the Writing Program of the Department of English in Arts & Sciences, will be held in Special Collections on Level 1 of John M. Olin Library.

It is free and open to the public.

The reading series, which originally ran from 2000-05, celebrates both the authors represented in the Libraries’ Modern Literature Collection and those poets and writers influenced by them today.
