Diane Seuss is the speaker for the Visiting Writers Series on Thursday, September 27th at 7 p.m., Gaylord Hall, Worner Center, 902 N. Cascade Ave.
Diane Seuss is the author of three poetry collections, including “Wolf Lake,” “White Gown Blown Open,” winner of the Juniper Prize for Poetry, and “Four-Legged Girl,” which was a finalist for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. The New York Times Book Review calls her newest volume, “Still Life with Two Dead Peacocks and a Girl,” a “marvelous, complex, attractive, frightening book.” Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry, Brevity, and The Missouri Review, as well as “The Best American Poetry” (2014).
She is teaching a poetry class Block 2. Check out her work owned by Tutt Library, currently in the First Floor, New Arrivals book display.
“The literary world is more than readers and writers, more than an audience and truth-speakers or world-builders. It’s about participating as a citizen in a literary community that is changing daily and taking on volatile and critical topics in every genre,” says Natanya Ann Pulley, a CC Assistant Professor of English and fiction writer.
The series is sponsored by the Colorado College Department of English with the support of the MacLean Visiting Writers Endowment and through co-sponsors such as the NEH Professorship, the Hulbert Center for Southwest Studies, the Journalist-in-Residence program, and The Press at Colorado College.
