Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series: Anne Carson

Inprint presents an evening with renowned poet Anne Carson as part of the 2013/14 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series. Carson will give a reading from her work followed by a book sale and signing.

The Canadian-born author is hailed by Michael Ondaatje as "the most exciting poet writing today." Often considered unclassifiable because of the way her work blends genres, Carson is known for using her background as a classicist to explore themes that uniquely fuse the Greek classics with issues of contemporary life. In 2000, she was a recipient of a MacArthur Foundation Genius fellowship. Her highly praised works include Men in the Off Hours; Autobiography of Red: A Novel in Verse, which was named a New York Times Notable Book in 1998 and was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award; and Beauty of the Husband.

Her most recent collection, Red.Doc>, is a sequel to Autobiography of Red.
