to read at Converse, calls poetry 'archive of the human heart'
Poet Sarah Kennedy will read at a free event at Converse College's Cleveland Alumnae House at 8 p.m. Tuesday.
During the year, Kennedy teaches at Mary Baldwin College in Virginia.
But starting next summer, she will join the faculty of Converse College's new low-residency Master of Fine Arts creative writing program.
In preparation for Tuesday's visit to the school, Kennedy
