We are thrilled to present this evening with Alice Notley to kick off our Spring Fundraising Week. Notley has published over thirty books of poetry, including (most recently) Reason and Other Women; Grave of Light: New and Selected Poems 1970-2005; Alma, or The Dead Women; and In the Pines. With her sons, Anselm and Edmund Berrigan, Notley edited The Collected Poems of Ted Berrigan. She is also the author of a book of essays on poets and poetry, Coming After. Notley has received many prizes and awards including the Academy of American Poets’ Lenore Marshall Prize, the Poetry Society of America’s Shelley Award, the Griffin Prize, two NEA Grants, and the Los Angeles Times Book Award for Poetry. Considered an important figure in the New York School, Notley now lives and writes in Paris, France.
This event will take place in the Sanctuary. Reception to follow. Admission is $10.
