Poetry: Jennifer Clarvoe

Friday Nov 11, 2011 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM This is a past program

Jennifer Clarvoe’s first book of poems, Invisible Tender, won the Poets Out Loud Prize and the prestigious Kate Tufts Discovery Award. In 2002 Clarvoe was awarded the Rome Prize in Literature by the American Academy of Arts and Letters, which allowed her to spend the year writing at the American Academy in Rome. Her new collection of poems is Counter-Amores.

This series of readings is organized and hosted by Stephen Yenser, poet and professor at UCLA and author of A Boundless Field: American Poetry at Large and Blue Guide.

Poetry is supported, in part, by the UCLA Department of English and Friends of English.

Public programs are made possible by Hammer Members and the generosity of Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, and an anonymous donor.
