On April 13th, 2017 we had our last Speaker for Convocation 2017 Series. Our last Speaker was Jeffrey Brown. Jeffrey's topic was "Reporter's Notebook". Jeffrey talked about his life and how it was impacted by being a News Reporter along with that he also published a book called "The News". His book of poetry, The News, brings a remarkable, fresh kind of attention to questions of identity and presence, delusion and awareness. The News is more than a venture into art by someone prominent in another field. In these poems, an unconventional subject for poetry is dealt with from within, by a real poet. Hearing him speak about his experiences in the News field was so amazing especially because he was telling you the different sides of the News and how they form it to be televised. Thank you to all who enjoyed our Convocation 2017 Series this semester. We hope to see you next semester.
