Tomorrow

  1. Lauren Haldeman Poetry Reading
    • Start time: 02:00pm
    • End time: 03:00pm
    • https://virginia.zoom.us/j/95173993255?pwd=Z2gyL1I2ZXpwUzBaOWJsZG40SjdLZz09Meeting ID: 951 7399 3255Passcode: 5k193dLauren Haldeman, poet, designer, and illustrator, is the author of two books of poetry: Calenday (Rescue Press) and Instead of Dying (Univ. Press of Colorado). She has received the Iowa Artist Fellowship, the Sustainable Arts Foundation Award, the Colorado Prize for Poetry, and fellowships from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Her work has appeared in Poetry, Tin House, Colorado Review, Fence, The Iowa Review and The Rumpus. Haldeman originally hails from Fairfax, Virginia. Her elegaic work, Instead of Dying, was selected by Susan Howe for the Colorado Prize. In her advance praise, Howe remarks, "Each of the seven sections of Instead of Dying delivers singular shocks and unanswerable questions. Guided by great figures in the history of science, these poems court the mystery lying beyond the precision of language and symbols in ‘the spell of the world pouring down.’”   

  2. Chet'la Sebree Poetry Reading
    • Start time: 03:30pm
    • End time: 04:30pm
    • https://virginia.zoom.us/j/98126028457?pwd=eXp6TjIySmZRZHRLWXBpSnhhMDU4QT09Meeting ID: 981 2602 8457Passcode: 0r200dChet'la Sebree is the winner of the 2020 Lenore Marshall Prize from the Academy of American Poets. She is the author of Mistress, selected by Cathy Park Hong as the winner of the 2018 New Issues Poetry Prize, and Field Study, which is forthcoming from FSG Originals in 2021. Raised in the Mid-Atlantic, she earned an MFA in Creative Writing, with a focus in poetry, from American University.  For her work, Chet’la has received fellowships from the Delaware Division of the Arts, Hedgebrook, MacDowell, the Robert H. Smith International Center for Jefferson Studies, the Stadler Center for Poetry, the Vermont Studio Center, and Yaddo. She is an assistant professor of English and the Director for the Stadler Center for Poetry & Literary Arts at Bucknell University. Mistress uses the tools of persona poetry to bring Sebree's contemporary speaker into dialogue with Sally Hemings. Cathy Park Hong notes in her advanced praise, "Like Kara Walker’s murals, Sebree runs from—and faces—the dark looming historical forces of miscegenation, enslavement, and the abjection of the black female body. The ghost of Sally Hemings as aberration, as mistress, determines the speaker’s id; tugs at her solitary fantasies; a violent erotic invasion that she inverts and turns on its head with lines etched in rage."
