Laura Vrana and Aldon Nielsen

Kudos to our recent PhD alumna Laura Vrana, Assistant Professor of English at the University of South Alabama, on the publication of _The Collected Poems of Lorenzo Thomas_ (Wesleyan UP), which she co-edited with Aldon Nielsen, the George and Barbara Kelly Professor of American Literature. Lorenzo Thomas (1944-2005) was the youngest member of the Society of Umbra, predecessor of the Black Arts Movement. _The Collected Poems of Lorenzo Thomas_ is the first volume to encompass his entire writing life. In a career that spanned decades, Thomas constantly experimented with form and subject, while still writing poetry deeply rooted in the traditions of African American aesthetics. Congratulations to Laura and Aldon!
