VESSEL: Text (Re)Accessioned — April Reception & Poetry Reading
 Join us in the Pearson Library for a reception and poetry reading in celebration of National Poetry Month. Featured guests include collaborators of the poetry project VESSEL: Text (Re)Accessioned: Jen Lagedrost, Larkin Higgins, & Madelynn Dickerson.

Inspired by found-text poets and book artists à la Tom Phillips (A Humument), VESSEL collaborators seek to offer an objet d’art that invites readers to consider the expected lifespan of a book, the material presence and fluid possibility of the printed word, as well as larger issues inherent to navigating the new age of discovery from old media to new meaning.

Professor Jacqueline Lyons (English) and her students will also perform readings during the event. All are welcome!

Date: Friday, April 24, 2015
Time: 4:00pm – 5:00pm
Location: Pearson Library
Campus: Thousand Oaks Main Campus
April 13 – 30, 2015
