A Conversation with Poet Nikky Finney
Date: 6:00pm PST November 16
Please join us for a conversation with poet Nikky Finney on her new book Love Child’s Hotbed of Occasional Poetry: Poems and Artifacts.
Nikky’s new book. Love Child’s Hotbed of Occasional Poetry (2020) is her first poetry collection since winning the National Book Award in 2011. In addition to the poems, there are hotbeds, a horticulture term introducing her readers to her journals, the place where most of her poems have always found their calcium and strong knees. There are also artifacts, images and photographs that assist the words in composing how the poet’s poet-life came to be.
