Gertrude & Harold S. Vanderbilt Visiting Writers Series: Toi Derricotte
Each semester Vanderbilt Creative Writing and the Gertrude & Harold S. Vanderbilt Visiting Writers Series brings writers to campus to read from their work and visit classes.
The readings series is an extraordinary program that gives students, faculty, and the Nashville community a chance to meet and talk with some of the best writers of today.
Toi Derricotte is the author of six collections of poetry, most recently, I: New & Selected Poems (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2019), a 2019 National Book Awards Finalist. An earlier collection of poems, Tender, won the 1998 Paterson Poetry Prize; and her literary memoir, The Black Notebooks (W.W. Norton), received the 1998 Anisfield-Wolf Book Award for Non-Fiction and was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
This semester’s reading series will be virtual and conducted via Zoom. All events are free and open to the public. Online registration is required for attendance.
