Poetry Reading: D.A. Powell
Date: March 5 2009 Location: - Manor House Armstrong Lounge
D. A. Powell’s books of poetry include Tea, Lunch, and Cocktails. The latter was a finalist for the PEN West, Lambda, Publishers’ Triangle and National Book Critics Circle Awards. Chronic, his fourth US collection, was published in February 2009.
The New York Times wrote of Powell’s work, “No accessible poet of his generation is half as original, and no poet as original is this accessible.” Among his many honors, Powell has received a Paul Engle Fellowship from the James Michener Center, a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, an Academy of American Poets Prize, and the Lyric Poetry Award from the Poetry Society of America. His work has appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, including New England Review, the Washington Post, Poetry, the Norton anthology Hybrid Forms, and Best American Poetry 2008.
