Kelvin Smith Library will host Herbert Woodward Martin, professor emeritus at the University of Dayton, for a presentation of Paul Laurence Dunbar’s poetry.

Dunbar (1872-1906) was among the first African-American poets to be nationally recognized for his literary works, which include short stories, novels and poems.

Titled “Celebrating Paul Laurence Dunbar,” the event will be held Wednesday, Feb. 13, from 4 to 6 p.m. in Kelvin Smith Library’s Dampeer Room (on the second floor).
