Our Next Event

04/23/2014 - 7:00pm

“Endlessly inventive and packed with small surprises, these poems turn the ordinary inside-out. Their quiet elegance belies their urgency, always underlying and makes the language all the more powerful for its restraint…[Frannie Lindsay is] among the very best of her generation, and Our vanishing is one of the most honest, moving books I’ve read in years.”

Chase Twitchell

"[Birthright is a] collection of poetry begs to be read again and again, with the poet's masterful use of rhythm and form, of repetition..."

Comstock Review

Frannie Lindsay’s previous volumes of poetry are Mayweed, Lamb, and Where She Always Was. Her awards include the Washington Prize, the Perugia Award, the May Swensen Award, and The Missouri Review Prize. Her work has been featured in Ted Kooser’s column “American Life in Poetry,” and on Writer’s Almanac and Poetry Daily. She has held fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and has received several Pushcart nominations.

Gwendolyn Jensen’s first book of poetry is Birthright. Her poems have been widely published in both electronic and print journals, including The Beloit Poetry Journal, The Harvard Review, Tears in the fence, The Malahat Review, Measure, Salamander, and Sanskrit Literary Arts Magazine. She serves as a board member of Off the Grid Press. Her second book, As if toward beauty, will be published some time next year.
