Jane Hirshfield Poetry Reading at the Anchorage Museum
by Green & Gold News |
Join visiting poet Jane Hirshfield on Sept. 28, 2023, at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of the Anchorage Museum where Jane will read her poetry and sign copies of her latest publication, The Asking (Knopf, Sept. 12, 2023), which will be available for sale.
This event is part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the UAA/APU Consortium Library.
Jane Hirshfield is the author of ten collections of poetry and two now-classic collections
of essays on poetry’s deep workings, and the editor of four co-translated books presenting
world poets from the deep past. Hirshfield is one of American poetry’s central spokespersons
for concerns about the biosphere and interconnection. Her honors include fellowships
from the Guggenheim and Rockefeller Foundations and from the Academy of American Poets;
the Poetry Center Book Award and the California Book Award; her books have been long-
and finalist-listed for the National Book Award, National Book Critics Circle Award,
and England’s T. S. Eliot Prize for Poetry. Her work, translated into seventeen languages,
appears in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The New York Review of Books, The Times Literary
Supplement, and ten editions of The Best American Poetry. A former chancellor of the
Academy of American Poets, she was elected to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences
in 2019. Her latest work will be released in September in time for her visit to Anchorage.
