MAY 02     Poet Marge Piercy

Friday, 7 pm in Room 220 

Marge Piercy is the author of seventeen novels including The New York Times’ bestseller Gone To Soldiers and the science fiction sensation He, She, and It, and sixteen volumes of poetry. Piercy’s recent collection of poetry, The Crooked Inheritance, is described by Martín Espada as “eloquent outrage against war and injustice; vivid evocations of a working-class family; gritty recollections of the city; and a passionate appreciation for mature love.” Born in center city Detroit, Piercy was the first member of her family to attend college and has been a key player in many of the major progressive political battles of our time, including the conflicts over the Vietnam War, the women's movement, and most recently the war in Iraq.
