Visiting poet Lauren Camp

Sun, 19 Mar, 2017 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The Writer's Center welcomes visiting poet Lauren Camp for a reading from her most recent collection, One Hundred Hungers. The reading will be followed by a reception and book signing.  

Published by Tupelo Press this past March, One Hundred Hungers is a work of imagination, research and myth about Ms. Camp's father’s childhood in Baghdad, and her interaction with the rituals and language of his Jewish-Iraqi culture. The book, a memoir told in poetry, won the  Dorset Prize, and has been reviewed by Publishers Weekly, Poet Lore and other journals.

Lauren Camp is the author of three books, most recently One Hundred Hungers (Tupelo Press, 2016), winner of the Dorset Prize. Her poems have been included in numerous national journals, including New England Review, Poetry International, The Seattle Review, At Length, North American Review, Beloit Poetry Journal, and as a Poem-a-Day for Poets.org. Other literary honors include prizes from RHINO, Western Humanities Review, and Southern Humanities Review, the Anna Davidson Rosenberg Award, and a Black Earth Institute Fellowship. She is a staff writer for Poets Reading the News and the producer/host of “Audio Saucepan” on Santa Fe Public Radio, a program that interweaves music with contemporary poetry. Her web site is www.laurencamp.com.
