Join us for an evening of poetry with Larissa Szporluk, which will be the final event of the semester for the Poets of Ohio reading series.

Szporluk will read from her most recent collection Traffic with MacBeth (Tupelo Press, 2011), as well as other work. Her performance will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

The event is free and open to the public. This and previous readings have been made possible by the support of the Helen B. Sharnoff Committee, the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities, as well as the English and SAGES Departments.

It would be very much appreciated if you could spread this announcement and/or word of the event over the course of the next few days.

Larissa Szporluk was raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan and earned degrees at the University of Michigan, the University of California-Berkeley, and the University of Virginia, where she was a Henry Hoyns fellow. Her books of poetry include Dark Sky Question (1998), which won the Barnard Poetry Prize; Isolato (2000), winner of the Iowa Poetry Prize; The Wind, Master Cherry, the Wind (2003); Embryos and Idiots (2007); and Traffic with Macbeth (2011). She has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, and currently teaches at Bowling Green State University.
