Poet McClanahan To Appear At Hiram College


Hiram – Hiram College’s Lindsay-Crane Center for Writing and Literature invites you to attend a convocation with poet and essayist Rebecca McClanahan on March 1, 2011 at 7 p.m. in the Pritchard Room of Hiram College Library.
Rebecca McClanahan has published nine books, most recently Deep Light: New and Selected Poems and a suite of memoir-based essays, The Riddle Song and Other Rememberings, which won the 2005 Glasgow Prize in Nonfiction. She has also authored four previous books of poetry and three books of writing instruction.
McClanahan’s work has appeared in The Best American Poetry, The Best American Essays, The Pushcart Prize series, Poetry, Kenyon Review, The Georgia Review, The Gettysburg Review, Boulevard, and Ms. Magazine, as well as in anthologies published by Beacon, Norton, Doubleday, St. Martin’s, Putnam, Penguin, and others.  She conducts readings, workshops, and lectures throughout the country, and teaches in the low-residency MFA programs at Queens University and Rainier Writers Workshop. Her current work-in-progress, a multi-generational nonfiction saga of an extended Midwest family, focuses on the difficulties and rewards of communal bonds.
The Lindsay-Crane Center wishes to thank the following organizations for their generous support of this event:  Building Community Through the Arts, the Office of Institutional Advancement, the Office of Alumni Relations, the Office of Special Events, and the Department of Education.
