Verse Like Water, the visiting poetry program of Central Lakes College, will present American poet Jenny Xie at noon Oct. 29 in the Chalberg Theater.

Xie is a professor at Bard College and her book “Eye Level” earned the Walt Whitman Award, judged by Verse Like Water poet Juan Felipe Herrera representing the American Academy of Poets. Verse Like Water's friendship with Graywolf Press in Minneapolis means attending high school students will receive a free copy of “Eye Level.”

This literary event will be followed by a book signing and a craft talk.
