May Swenson's 100th Birthday Celebration

Make time to visit the exhibition, "May Swenson's 100th Birthday Celebration," in the atrium of the Merrill-Cazier Library. This exhibition celebrates May's life as a poet and as a native Loganite. May was born and raised in Logan, graduated from Utah State University and started her writing career while a student at Logan High School. While the bulk of her adult life was spent in New York she never forgot her roots in the West. Much of her poetry is based on her life in the desert and her love for nature. In her illustrious life as a poet, May garnered many writing awards and fellowships; a Guggenheim and Rockefeller to name just two. Displayed are samplings of her poetry along with family pictures, broadsides, and other ephemera. The exhibition will be on display from April until the middle of June.
