A professor at Virginia Tech, Giovanni has written many collections of poetry, starting with her first self-published volume “Black Feeling, Black Talk” (1968). She has published more than 20 works of poetry, nonfiction, children’s books, and edited anthologies.

Books and broadsides will be sold at the reading, and a signing will follow the event.
