LITERATURE | Cornelius Eady 

Rochester native and award winning poet and musician Cornelius Eady is now based in Southampton, New York, where he teaches poetry in the MFA program at Stony Brook University. He has produced eight volumes of poetry, won the 1985 Lamont Poetry Prize from the Academy of American Poets, and has been a finalist for both the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. He's also the cofounder of Cave Canem, a nonprofit that cultivates the artistic and professional growth of African American poets. Eady returns to town this week as the featured author in the Brockport Writers Forum "Writer's Voice" event, at which he'll give a reading of his work and play songs in a trio with guitarist Charlie Rauh and bassist Bernie Heveron.

The Writer's Voice featuring Cornelius Eady will take place on Wednesday, November 7, at 7:30 p.m. at Rochester Educational Opportunity Center, 161 Chestnut Street. Free. 395-2503; brockport.edu.
