On Wednesday, Sept. 16, Kuusisto will participate in an audience Q&A session at 3:45 p.m., followed by an author reading at 5:30 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public, and take place in Gifford Auditorium of Huntington Beard Crouse Hall.

“Stephen Kuusisto is many things to many people—a professor, an administrator, a social advocate, but we are particularly excited to highlight his accomplishments as a distinguished poet,” Harwell says. “Like much of his work, Stephen’s poetry draws on themes of travel, place, religion, music, and loneliness, exploring the relationship between sight, blindness, and being.”
