Inprint presents an evening of poetry with National Book Award winner Terrance Hayes and National Book Award finalist Kim Addonizio as part of the 2012-2013 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series. An on-stage interview will follow the reading, conducted by poet/UH Creative Writing Program faculty member Tony Hoagland, plus a book sale and signing at which audience members can meet the poets.
Kim Addonzio is the provocative author of five collections of poetry including Lucifer at the Starlite, a finalist for the Poets' Prize and the Northern California Book Award; What Is This Thing Called Love; and Tell Me, a National Book Award Finalist.
Terrance Hayes is the 2010 National Book Award winner in poetry for his collection Lighthead, described by Publisher's Weekly as a collection in "which the political and the personal converge in innovative and beautiful ways....the kinds of sly, twisting, hip, jazzy poems his fans have come to expect." His other works include Wind in a Box; Hip Logic, winner of the National Poetry Series; and Muscular Music, winner of both the Whiting Writers Award and the Kate Tufts Discovery Award.
