Kallet will read from Last Love Poems of Paul Eluard and selections from her own work

Marilyn Kallet will read poems of surrealist French poet Paul Eluard and selections from her own work on Monday, February 12 at 7 p.m. A reception, featuring chocolate, will be held immediately after the reading. The event is free and open to the public.

Kallet’s translation of Eluard’s works, the Last Love Poems of Paul Eluard, was first published by Louisiana State University Press in 1980. Black Widow Press published a revised and updated edition of the work in 2006

Kallet is the author of eleven books, including poetry, translations, anthologies and criticism. Her poems have appeared in hundreds of literary magazines. She has won the Tennessee Arts Commission Literary in Poetry, and was named Outstanding Woman in the Arts by the Knoxville YWCA in 2000. Kallet directed the creative writing program at UT for seventeen years and now holds the Hodges Chair for Distinguished Teaching in English.

The reading will be held in the Lindsay Young Auditorium of Hodges Library. The reception, sponsored by the UT English Department, will follow immediately after the reading in the Mary E. Greer Room on the second floor of Hodges Library, near the Melrose entrance.

The Writers in the Library series is sponsored by the University of Tennessee Libraries and the Creative Writing Program of the UT English Department.

Hodges Library features Commons, Media Center updates

The Commons and Media Center in Hodges Library have some new changes to kick off the New Year.

In the Commons, there are 18 new desktop computers as well as new chairs, desks and lighting. In Commons 220, new artwork is on the walls, thanks to a contribution from the Chancellor’s Office.

Also new in the Commons is a new SMART Sympodium for the Practice Presentation Room, an interactive SMART board for the Martha L. King group study room, and a mobile codec videoconferencing system that can be used in either room.

For more information on the Commons, visit commons.utk.edu

The Media Center has also made changes, providing table-seating near its entrance. The area is designed for hands-on use of Media Center equipment.

Many more changes are in store for the Commons and the Libraries! Stay tuned for more information.
