Linda Pastan’s work is wise and her palette wide enough to consider the possibilities and potencies of the human voice, while Tracy K. Smith’s work is noted for its hauntingly elegant language. Together these two poets explore the language of personal and social realms. Pastan, a former Maryland Poet Laureate, is the author of eleven books of poetry, the most recent being Queen of a Rainy Country. Smith is the Assistant Professor of Creative Writing in the Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University. She is the author of two books of poetry, Duende, winner of the James Laughlin Award, and The Body’s Question, winner of the 2002 Cave Canem Poetry Prize.
A wine reception with a book sale and signing will follow the reading.
