The Gleeson Library is pleased to sponsor a faculty reading on Thursday, April 26 as it welcomes University of San Francisco Associate Professor Dean Rader, who will read from his book Works & Days (Truman State University Press) which received the T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry in 2010. Professor Rader has published widely in the fields of poetry, literary studies, American Indian studies, and visual/popular culture. He co-edited Speak To Me Words: Essays on Contemporary American Indian Poetry (2003), and his pop culture reader, The World Is A Text, is in its fourth edition. His book Engaged Resistance: American Indian Art, Literature, and Film From Alcatraz to the NMAI was published by the University of Texas Press in 2011. He teaches in the English Department and in the Honors Program in the Humanities. He also is a contributor to the San Francisco Chronicle City Brights Blog.

The program begins at 5:00 on Thursday, April 26 in the Donohue Rare Book Room, located on the third floor of the Gleeson Library. Light refreshments will be served and books will be available for purchase. The program is free and open to the public. All are welcome to attend.
