Poet graces MUC bookstore

Poet Gabrielle Calvocoressi came to SIUE in February to read from her recently published book “The Last Time I Saw Amelia Earhart.” Her appearance drew 40 to 50 people, who listened with rapt attention. The central Connecticut native lives in Berkeley, California, and her poems have appeared in a number of journals including The New England Review, Ninth Letter, and The Paris Review (from which she received the Bernard F. Connors Prize for the long poem, according to the back cover of her book).

A recipient of the Rona Jaffe Award for Emerging Women Writers, she has been both a Stegner Fellow and a Jones Lecturer at Stanford University.
