Ancient Book Club Discussion of “Dear Selection Committee” by Melissa Studdard

March 23, 2023 @ 8:30 pm EDT

Book Club Web Event Header Dear Selection Committee

Hosted by Anne Patterson ’78 and Callie Brzezinski ’16

Join your fellow Ancients and author Melissa Studdard and for a lively discussion about her book of poetry, “Dear Selection Committee.”

“Dear Selection Committee attests that although life can feel like a bumpy cab ride to interview for a job you feel uniquely unqualified for if you lay aside the anxieties of self just long enough to peer out the window, you’ll see great beauty amidst the chaos.” – Jackleg Press

“Melis­sa Stud­dard is already an accom­plished poet, but her newest col­lec­tion—Dear Selec­tion Com­mit­tee—feels spe­cial. Framed as a job appli­ca­tion, the book dis­rupts and active­ly fights against the ways that work has tak­en over people’s lives in recent years. Sur­pris­ing and defi­ant, Studdard’s poet­ry feels espe­cial­ly poignant now, as a reces­sion and infla­tion loom overhead.” – Megan Reynolds, Jewish Book Council
