Saint Joseph’s University Writing Series

Thursday November 13, 6:30 p.m.

Cardinal John P. Foley Campus Center

Saint Joseph’s University Alumnus Thomas Dooley, winner of the National Poetry Series, returns to campus to read from Trespass, his new poetry collection.



 Fabulous reviews for Trespass:

“In these jumpy, surprising poems, Thomas Dooley treads fearlessly as he reveals the submerged secrets of a family and gives utterance to the erotic pleasures and pains of love. Trespass is an intense, eye-opening debut.” —Billy Collins, former Poet Laureate of the United States

“Pierces and heals simultaneously….Trespass sings the music of now, shaped on the lathe of experience, and through the pleasures of physical knowledge, revelatory imagery, and imagination, this collection transports us.” —Yusef Komunyakaa, Pulitzer Prize winning poet
