Event Description

As Sebastian Matthews writes of her third collection, “The poems in Vievee Francis’ Forest Primeval are fearless, full-throated, whip-smart and can come at you from just about any angle.” Francis is the author of two other books of poetry: Blue-Tail Fly and Horse in the Dark, which won the Cave Canem Northwestern University Poetry Prize for a second collection. Her work has appeared in numerous journals, textbooks, and anthologies, including Poetry, Best American Poetry, and Angles of Ascent: A Norton Anthology of Contemporary African American Poetry. She serves as an associate editor of Callaloo and an associate professor of English at Dartmouth College. The event will be followed by refreshments.
