Program for a group reading held April 28th 1969 for winners of The Poetry Center's Discovery Prize (whose past recipients included Frank O'Hara and Mark Strand). Included among the honorees is Lucille Clifton, whose poem "Miss Rosie" is printed in full ó only her second poem to appear in print. Also printed is Clifton's self-penned biography. In full: "I am 32 years old, married and have six children. Before this year I had had only poem published in Negro Digest magazine. Publishing has seemed less important than writing and I hadn't thought about it much. I majored in Drama at Howard University a long time ago but I dropped out. My family is my first thing and everything else is second, etc. I love to read good things to people." Clifton published her first book, GOOD TIMES (Random House, 1969) as a direct result of having won this prize. A rare piece of ephemera that in many ways marks the beginning of the career of one of our most important African American poets.
