Event Information

In her own assessment, her work is based on “the sound and color and flavor of words,” and takes a deep and sensual pleasure in puns, coinages, and crosslingual wordplay. Her books include Lucky Fish, At the Drive-In Volcano, and Miracle Fruit, and she is the recipient of a 2009 National Endowment of the Arts Literature Fellowship and a 2009 Pushcart Prize. She holds an MFA from Ohio State University and is currently an associate professor of English at the State University of New York in Fredonia.

Free and open to the public.
