CURRENTS Talk: Tanya Olson

txt me im board: Long Poem in Contemporary American Poetry

Wednesday, November 18, 2015
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Performing Arts & Humanities Building : 216
Part of the Dresher Center for the Humanities' CURRENTS: Humanities Work Now talks, Tanya Olson will present work from her new poetry manuscript, Stay. Stay explores, in America today, the cost of remaining in one place (physically, intellectually, economically, and geographically) as well as the costs associated with leaving a place. Specifically, she will focus on "tx me im board," a long poem at the heart of the collection. She is especially interested in this piece as an example of the long poem genre and its place in contemporary American poetry. Please considering joining her for this exciting talk and presentation of her work.
