A reading of Canadian author Margaret Atwood’s poetry and prose passages will be held at Rochester Institute of Technology later this month.

The event will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 21, in the Idea Factory in RIT’s Wallace Library and will feature faculty, staff and student poets from RIT, other area colleges and the Rochester poetry community.

Atwood is the acclaimed author of such novels as The Handmaid’s Tale and Oryx and Crake, and is also a renowned poet.

The reading was organized in anticipation of an RIT-University of Rochester event that will bring Atwood and composer Tania León to the RIT campus March 26. The event also recognizes UNESCO World Poetry Day.
