STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey will appear at Mississippi State University on Sept. 24 to read from her works.

Trethewey’s program will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Colvard Union’s Bill R. Foster Ballroom. A question-and-answer session will follow.

Trethewey, a professor of English and creative writing at Emory University in Atlanta, won the Pulitzer Prize in 2007 for her collection “Native Guard.”

She was named Mississippi’s poet laureate in January of 2012, for a four-year term. The Library of Congress named her the nation’s 19th poet laureate in June 2012. She is the first person to serve simultaneously as poet laureate for the nation and a state.

Other notable Trethewey publications include “Thrall” (2012); “Bellocq’s Ophelia” (2002); and “Domestic Work” (2000).
