Join the Suffolk University literary community for an evening to celebrate the poetry and translations of David Ferry. This year, Ferry returns for the third time as a Distinguished Visiting Scholar in the College of Arts and Sciences.

Professor Ferry is the 2011 winner of the prestigious Ruth Lilly Prize for a lifetime of poetic achievement that includes five books of his own poetry and acclaimed translations of the Gilgamesh epic, the Odes of Horace, the Eclogues and Georgics of Virgil, as well as his own translation-in-progress of Virgil's Aeneid.

During the celebration, Ferry will read from his many works and local fellow writers will respond to his reading as well as read some of their own works.
