Poet and Essayist Dawn Lundy Martin
November 9 @ 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm
Cleveland E. and Phyllis B. Dodge Room, Flynn Campus Union
Join acclaimed poet, critic, and essayist Dawn Lundy Martin for a selection of readings from her award-winning writing. Her poetry collections include Life in a Box is a Pretty Life (Nightboat Books, 2015), winner of the LAMBDA Award for Lesbian Poetry; Discipline (2011), chosen by Fanny Howe for the Nightboat Books Prize; and A Gathering of Matter/A Matter of Gathering (2007), which was selected for the Cave Canem Poetry Prize by Carl Phillips and was a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award. Of Good Stock, Strange Blood (Coffee House Press, 2017), Maggie Nelson wrote: “Dawn Lundy Martin’s poems read like a real-time excavation of what poetry can and can’t do; how the past is never past; how to stand in the blur, the ‘griefmouth’ of personal and collective pain, and somehow make thought, make fury, make song.”
This event is free and open to the Springfield College community and the public.
