The Ed and Emily Wilson Archie Ammons event will be held in Special Collections & Archives (Room 625, Z. Smith Reynolds Library) on January 26, 3:00-4:30.
An afternoon of poetry and remembrances of the poet A.R. Ammons, whom everyone learned to call Archie, presented by Ed and Emily Wilson. Archie and his family spent the 1973-1974 school year at Wake Forest University, living near Ed and Emily in a faculty neighborhood, in what turned out to be the beginning of a 30-year friendship. Emily‘s most recently published book, “When I Go Back to My Home Country”: A Remembrance of Archie Ammons,” chronicles that friendship and will be available for sale in collaboration with Bookmarks.
Light refreshments will be served.
