That book won the prestigious Paterson Prize. Her poetry volume What We Carry was a finalist for the National Book Critic’s Circle Award.
Joseph Millar's first collection, Overtime, was a finalist for the 2001 Oregon Book Award. His second collection, Fortune, appeared in 2007, followed by a third, Blue Rust, in 2012. His latest collection Kingdom will be released in early 2017.
We hope to see you on the 27th.
