The spring semester of the Writers at Barnard Reading Series begins with a Women Poets at Barnard event: three poets will read from their work.

Lisa Lubasch is the author of four books of poetry, Twenty-One After Days, To Tell the Lamp, Vicinities, and How Many More of Them Are You? She is also the translator of Paul Éluard's A Moral Lesson. She writes with a “lovely precision and lyricism” that enables the poems “to extend in every direction” (Boston Review).

Maureen McLane is the author of two books of poems, World Enough and Same Life, and a poetry chapbook, This Carrying Life. She has also published three books of prose, including the 2012 My Poets, which is “beguiling” and “a delightful shock” (New York Times Book Review). She teaches at New York University.

Susan Wheeler is the author of a novel, Record Palace, and six books of poetry, Bag ‘o’ Diamonds, Smokes, Source Codes, Ledger, Assorted Poems, and Meme, “a haunted work” which is voiced by the “hungry ghosts of our recent past” (Rae Armantrout), and which is shortlisted for the 2012 National Book Award. She teaches at Princeton University.

This event is free and open to the public.  A reception will follow.  (Sulzberger Parlor is on the third floor of Barnard Hall.)
