Rachel GalvinSDSU’s Department of English and Comparative Literature is launching a new series of literary events this spring, and the second one will be held at the SDSU Library on March 1 at 5:30 p.m. Poet Rachel Galvin will be sharing her works and insights with us that evening in Room LL430, and I think this will be a reading you don’t want to miss.

Rachel published her debut book, Pulleys & Locomotion, in September 2009. According to Rachel, her book can be described as “a hub for movement, immigration, and flight. Alternating between lyrical extension and succinct prose poems, this book brings together science, philosophy, folktale, and half-remembered
history.” Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?

Pulleys & Locomotion

Rachel Galvin grew up in Rochester, New York, and has lived in Washington, D.C. and Paris. She has been a fellow at Hedgebrook, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and a James A. Michener Fellow in Poetry at the University of Texas at Austin. Her poems, translations, and essays appear in journals including McSweeney’s, Drunken Boat, Gulf Coast, Humanities Magazine, and World Literature Today. She’s currently a graduate student in comparative Literature at Princeton University, where she studies 20th century poetry.

Hope you can attend!
