“Together We Inspire” Sarah’s Inn Educational Forum
Oak Park Country Club, River Grove
For the annual Educational Breakfast Forum, “Take Action to Create Safer Communities,” benefiting Sarah’s Inn, I will be interviewing and leading a conversation with Natasha Trethewey, two-term U.S. Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner for her 2006 poetry collection, Native Guard. She is the author of five collections of poetry and a nonfiction book, as well as a Board of Trustees Professor of English at Northwestern University.
Born in Mississippi, her poetry is rooted in history and her latest collection, Monument, focuses on her personal trauma of losing her mother, Gwendolyn, who was murdered by her second ex-husband, Tretheway’s stepfather.
