O.B. Hardison Poetry Series Dorianne Laux

201 East Capitol St SE
Washington, Virginia

Poet Dorianne Laux will travel to The Homestead in Amherst, the home of Emily Dickinson, to celebrate Dickinson’s birthday. Laux will read poetry from Dickinson’s bedroom.

With language that is at times sensually earthy then heavenly lyrical, Dorianne Laux’s poems share their wisdom and beauty like a slowly opening rose. She is the author of five collections of poetry, including “Only as the Day is Long,” a finalist for the 2020 Pulitzer Prize.

She teaches poetry at North Carolina State University and is a founding faculty member of Pacific University’s Low Residency MFA Program. Laux is a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist and a recipient of the Paterson Prize.

Tickets for this virtual reading cost $5 to $15. You can find more information online.
