New Writing Series: Rae Armantrout and Fanny Howe

Jan 25, 2023
5:00 PM–6:00 PM

Fanny Howe has written many novels, collections of poetry and essays. She is Professor Emerita at UC San Diego and has won a Lannan award for Lifetime Achievement and a Guggenheim Fellowship, among other honors. Her most recent publications were “Love and I” from Graywolf Press and “Manimal Woe” from Arrowsmith.

Writing for the Poetry Foundation, David Woo says that Rae Armantrout’s recent book “Finalists” (Wesleyan 2022) “emanates the radiant astonishment of living thought.” Her 2018 book, “Wobble”, was a finalist for the National Book Award that year. Her other books with Wesleyan include “Partly: New and Selected Poems”, “Just Saying, Money Shot” and “Versed”. In 2010 “Versed” won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and The National Book Critics Circle Award. Retired from UC San Diego where she was professor of poetry and poetics, she is the current judge of the Yale Younger Poets Prize.

This event will be held in the Seuss Room at Geisel Library. There will also be a virtual option for those who prefer to join online. Details:
