Wisconsin Poet Laureate Margaret Rozga will read from her latest book, Pestiferous Questions: A Life in Poems. These poems call us to consider how our history echoes, repeats, and reverberates. It has earned praise for "melding voices, modes of writing, language, image, and personal and political history in this impressive book of poetry." Rozga will also respond to questions and comments from the audience.
