Pulitzer Prize Winning Poet Comes to USD

Take a journey through the depths of the deep South this Friday with Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Natasha Trethewey, whose body work has been described as "muscular, luminous poems (that) explore the complex memory of the American South."

She’ll take the stage at USD as the focus of the Cropper Writers’ Series; her most recent collection of poems, Native Guard, explores the story of one of the first black regiments to fight during the Civil War.
