HIGH POINT, N.C., March 7, 2014 – High Point University will host acclaimed poet and professor Dr. Charmaine Cadeau as part of its Faculty Cultural Enrichment Grant Series, to be held at 7 p.m. March 20 in the Francis Auditorium of Phillips Hall on the HPU campus. The event is free and open to the public; no tickets are required.
Cadeau, assistant professor of English at HPU, will present poems from her most recent book, “Placeholder.”
“I’ve been serving on the committee for the Phoenix Reading Series for almost four years and have enjoyed hosting the many innovative and inspiring writers we’ve had at HPU,” says Cadeau. “It’s delightful to be a guest this spring and enjoy the event from the other side of the podium.”
Cadeau has written two full-length collections of poetry: “What You Used to Wear” and “Placeholder.” Her poems have been published widely, and can be found in various publications, including “The Fiddlehead,” “Grain,” “11.11” and “The Antigonish Review.”
Cadeau teaches writing and contemporary literature at HPU, edits “Apogee Magazine,” HPU’s annual literary magazine, and co-directs the Community Writing Center off campus.
