Karen Head to give poetry reading Oct. 30

Karen Head, associate professor, associate chair, and Executive Director of the Naugle Communication Center, will hold a reading of poetry from her new book Lost on Purpose, Wednesday, Oct. 30 from 11 a.m. to noon in the Library's seventh-floor meeting room. This event is held in partnership with Poetry @ TECH.

Head, 2010 winner of the Oxford International Women’s Festival Poetry Prize, is author of Sassing, My Paris YearShadow Boxes, and On Occasion: Four Poets, One Year. She also co-edited the poetry anthology Teaching as a Human Experience: An Anthology of Poetry.

Head serves as the editor of the Atlanta Review international poetry journal and as secretary for the Poetry Atlanta Board of Directors. She's also Poet Laureate of the Waffle House, a title that reflects a Waffle House Foundation-sponsored outreach program to bring arts awareness to rural high schools in Georgia.

In addition to her poetry, Head also wrote Disrupt This! MOOCs and the Promises of Technology, a non-fiction book about issues in contemporary higher education.
