Lecture and Discussion: Why I Write


Location: 215/216 McKenna Hall (View on map )

Featuring Natasha Trethewey, Artist-in-Residence, Notre Dame Initiative on Race and Resilience

In this meditation, the Pulitzer Prize-winning 19th Poet Laureate of the United States considers the origins of her writing life. At the crossroads of personal and public history, she charts the contours of an American story, a life in letters.

Trethewey is the author of the New York Times bestseller Memorial Drive: A Daughter’s Memoir (2020); a book of nonfiction, Beyond Katrina: A Meditation on the Mississippi Gulf Coast (2010); and five collections of poetry.
