When: Thursday, April 27, 7 p.m.

Jennifer Elise Foerster and Michael Wasson will read poetry as part of the Distinguished Writer’s Series, curated by faculty of the Creative Writing Program at the UA. Jennifer Elise Foerster is the author of three books of poetry, most recently, The Maybe Bird (The Song Cave, 2022). She also wrote Leaving Tulsa and Bright Raft in the Afterweather, both published by The University of Arizona Press.
Leaving Tulsa, a book of road elegies and laments, travels from Oklahoma to the edges of the American continent through landscapes at once stark and lush, ancient and apocalyptic. Bright Raft in the Afterweather travels the spheres of the past, present, future, and eternal time, exploring the fault lines that signal the break of humanity’s consciousness from the earth.
