Grace Bauer and Hilda Raz, two poets who helped build the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Creative Writing Program, will read from their new books during a virtual event at 7 p.m. April 22, via Zoom.
Bauer’s “Unholy Heart” includes generous selections from each of her previous books of poetry, plus a sampling of new poems. Bauer has long been known for the wide range of both her subject matter and poetic style.
Raz has an ability “to tell something every day and make it tough,” says John Kinsella in his introduction to Raz’s “Letter from a Place I’ve Never Been.” The book shows readers the evolution of a powerful poet who is also one of the foremost literary editors in the country.
The event is sponsored by the Creative Writing program.
