Visiting Poet D.A. Powell (link)
|Date:||Wednesday, November 15th|
D.A. Powell will read and discuss his work. Powell earned an MA at Sonoma State University and an MFA at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. His first three collections of poetry, "Tea" (1998), "Lunch" (2000), and "Cocktails" (2004), are considered by some to be a trilogy on the AIDS epidemic. "Lunch" was a finalist for the National Poetry Series, and "Cocktails" was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for poetry. His next two books were "Chronic" (2009), which won the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award; and "Useless Landscape, or A Guide for Boys" (2012), which won the National Book Critics Circle Award for poetry.
