Kim Addonizio, who has been called “one of our nation’s most provocative and edgy poets,” will give a reading on Wednesday, Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. in the Alton Auditorium, second floor of the A-Wing on the college’s main campus.
Addonizio’s latest books include Lucifer at the Starlite, a finalist for the $3000 Poets’ Prize, awarded annually by a committee of about 20 American poets, and the Northern California Book Award, awarded by a group of book reviewers, book review editors and others who write about reading. She also authored Ordinary Genius: A Guide to the Poet Within.
Her many honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship, two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships and Pushcart Prizes (Best of the Small Presses) for both poetry and essay. She has also published two novels from Simon & Schuster: Little Beauties and My Dreams Out in the Street.
Addonizio often incorporates her love of blues harmonica into her readings, according to her biography.
A donation is requested, ranging from $3 for students with identification, to $5 for seniors with ID, $10 general admission, or larger contributions to the college’s Visiting Writer Series from $25-$500 if a donor chooses.
