Emotionally articulate, Frank Bidart’s work is subtle and probing. In her own smart, sardonic way, Rae Armantrout tackles the difficult subjects of time, science, and religion. These two poets provide the earnest and the understated in a reading that spans the spectrum. Bidart teaches at Wellesley College and has published six books of poetry, most recently Watching the Spring Festival. His collection Desire was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, and National Book Critics Circle Award. Armantrout is a Professor of Writing in the Literature Department at the University of California at San Diego and the author of eight books of poetry. Her most recent works are Next Life and Up to Speed.
A wine reception with book sale and signing will follow the reading.
