Join us for an in-person reading with Saretta Morgan. All events will be streamed live on our website in addition to the in-person reading.
Saretta Morgan was born in Appalachia and raised on military installations. Her work explores the ecologies and intimacies that materialize in the shadows of U.S. militarization. Her first full-length poetry collection, Alt-Nature (Coffee House Press, 2024), addresses these subjects through the landscape of the Sonoran desert. She is a member of the Belladonna* Collaborative and organizes with the grassroots humanitarian aid organization No More Deaths, and with About Face: Veterans Against the War.
We're grateful for support from the College of Humanities, Health Sciences Innovations in Healthy Aging, the W.A. Franke Honors College, and from supporters in the Poetry Center's Walt Whitman Circle for their underwriting support.
