Single west-coast reading by dynamic, forceful Pennsylvania-based poet
Lynn Emanuel, based in Pennsylvania, is a dynamic, forceful poet and we are lucky to have her for a single west coast reading for Marin Poetry Center.
She will be reading with philosopher and poet, Troy Jollimore. It should be a great evening!
Lynn Emanuel‘s poetry collection, The Dig received the National Poetry Series Award. Emanuel’s work has also been awarded a Pushcart Prize and has been featured in several Best American Poetry anthologies and the Oxford Book of American Poetry. Her latest work is The Nerve Of It: Poems New and Selected. She has received two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Eric Matthieu King Award from the Academy of American Poets.
Troy Jollimore is the author of three books of poetry and three books of philosophy, as well as numerous articles, essays, and reviews. His first collection of poetry, Tom Thomson in Purgatory, won the National Book Critics Circle award in poetry for 2006. His third, Syllabus of Errors, appeared on the New York Times’ list of the best books of poetry published in 2015.
In 2013 he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in poetry. He has also received fellowships from the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference and the Stanford Humanities Center in Palo Alto, California. He is currently a Professor in the Philosophy Department at California State University, Chico.
