The Department of Writing at Pratt Institute and The Beinecke Library at Yale University Present Susan Howe
Author of more than a dozen books of poetry and two of literary criticism, Susan Howe’s recent collection of poems, That This, won the Bollingen Prize in 2011. Howe held the Samuel P. Capen Chair in Poetry and the Humanities at the State University New York at Buffalo until her retirement in 2007. Recently, she was an Artist in Residence at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. In October 2013, her word collages were exhibited at Yale Union in Portland, Oregon, and in the Whitney Biennial in spring 2014. A limited press edition of R.H. Quaytman has just been published by MoMA in New York.
This event is co-sponsored by The Beinecker Library at Yale University.
