Pulitzer Prize Finalist Preps Seniors for Poetry Reading

November 10, 2017 – Early last week, National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize finalist Adrian Matejka visited Conner’s 12th Grade Poetry class. The National Poetry Series winner and NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literature finalist spoke with the seniors about writing and presenting poetry as the class was preparing for their Tuesday evening Poetry Reading in the Orvis Theatre. The annual Poetry Reading is often a transformational moment for seniors as they share deeply personal poems with a supportive audience.
