Bates presents a poet whose work is described as ‘fiercely beautiful’

LAL15-Gregerson-HA Language Arts Live event this week features the author of “dizzyingly ambitious and fiercely beautiful” poetry (The Atlantic).

Linda Gregerson, a much-honored author of several collections of poetry, reads from her work at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5, in the Edmund S. Muskie Archives, 70 Campus Ave. Her books will be available for purchase and signing.

Sponsored by the English department at Bates, the event is open to the public at no cost. For more information, please call 207-753-6963.

Gregerson’s collections include this year’s New and Selected Poems; Magnetic North, a finalist for the 2007 National Book Award; and 2003’s Waterborne, which won a Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award.
