Lebanon Valley College will host award-winning performance poet Joshua Bennett for a free and public performance March 20 at 7 p.m. in Leedy Theater of the Mund College Center. LVC student poets Marquis Bey '14, Stephanie Agudelo '16, and Isaiah Luck '14 will open the show.

Bennett has recited his original works at events and venues such as The Sundance Film Festival, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Image Awards, The Kennedy Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Poetry Africa, and President Obama's Evening of Poetry and Music at the White House. Bennett has also performed on BBC Radio Oxford alongside former U.S. Poet Laureates Billy Collins and Rita Dove, at the Du Bois Institute Panel as a guest of Henry Louis Gates, and opened for Dr. Cornel West at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Hailing from Yonkers, New York, Bennett is a third-year doctoral candidate in the English department at Princeton University. He is also a Callaloo Fellow, and, as of this summer, a teacher of 8th-grade Composition. His poetry has been published (or is forthcoming) in Callaloo, Anti-, Tidal Basin Review, Drunken Boat, Storyscape, and Muzzle. Bennett is also the founding editor of Kinfolks Quarterly.

LVC students also have the opportunity to participate in a workshop with Bennett on March 20 at 3:30 p.m. in the Mund College Center Living Room. Student should bring a paper and pencil and their creativity.

This event is sponsored by the Agnes O'Donnell Poets and Writers Series. For more information on Bennett and to see videos of his past performances, visit joshbennettthepoet.tumblr.com.
