Two Pulitzer Prize-winning poets, both firmly ensconced in the American South, read from their latest works, which forage resonant gems from a past both personal and public. Claudia Emerson’s emotional poise renders her work a beautifully transcendent clarity, and Natasha Trethewey’s comprehensive skill with form allows her lush language to probe history’s darker secrets with an acute and deft grace.
Emerson is the author of four books, including Late Wife, which received the 2006 Pulitzer Prize. She is a Professor of English and Arrington Distinguished Chair in Poetry at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Trethewey is the author of Native Guard, which won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize, and two other award-winning collections. She is the Phillis Wheatley Distinguished Chair Professor of Poetry at Emory University.
A wine reception with a book sale and signing will follow the reading.
