More about the readers Laura Mullen's recent book of poems is Dark Archive. Fred Moten says of it, "See how veer, wander, being dragged, suffering restructuring, turn into new solids, solidarities of moving, hard-edged lyric social work in solitude, for the crowd, against loneliness, which is really, really cool." Her brand new book, to be celebrated at this event, is Enduring Freedom: A Little Book of Mechanical Brides. Her first book of poems, The Surface, was a National Poetry Series selection; subsequent collections are After I Was Dead, and Subject. Her poetry has been anthologized in American Hybrid, and among her honors are Ironwood's Stanford Prize, a Rona Jaffe Award, and a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship.
Carol Snow's latest book is Placed: Karesansui Poems. Her first book of poems, Artist and Model, was also a National Poetry Series selection, followed by For and The Seventy Prepositions. Anthologized in American Hybrid and Lyric Postmodernisms, she has been honored with the Joseph Henry Jackson Award, a Pushcart Prize, and a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship.
