Professor of English Eamon Grennan read from his book, What Light There Is and Other Poems (1987). Emma Harzem ‘93, who covered the lecture for The Miscellany News, described Grennan’s reading, “Already powerful, the poems were even more moving in presentation, perhaps because of the particular attention Grennan pays to the sound of language.” Grennan spoke of his relationship with Vassar and the United States, and of his career, “All of us who write poems are interested in washing our dirty laundry in public.”
