Elliston Poetry Reading, March 14, 2014, Dana Levin

The next reading in the Elliston Reading Series will be by poet Dana Levin.

March 14, 2014, 4:00 PM, Elliston Poetry Room, 646 Langsam Library

Dana Levin’s first book, In the Surgical Theatre, was awarded the 1999 American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize and went on to receive nearly every award available to first books and emerging poets. Copper Canyon Press brought out her second book, Wedding Day, in 2005, and in 2011 her most recent, Sky Burial, which The New Yorker called “utterly her own and utterly riveting.” She has received numerous fellowships and awards, including those from the National Endowment for the Arts, PEN, the Witter Bynner Foundation and the Library of Congress, as well as the Rona Jaffe, Whiting and Guggenheim Foundations. A teacher of creative writing and literature for over twenty years, Levin currently co-chairs the Creative Writing and Literature Department at Santa Fe University of Art and Design.

Look for recordings of this presentation soon in the digital collection, The Elliston Project: Poetry Readings and Lectures at the University of Cincinnati.
