Pacific's Visiting Writers Presents: Author Talk With Ada Limón

Join Pacific University's Visiting Writers series for an author talk with Ada Limón  — author of five books of poetry, including The Carrying, a National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry. Pre-registration is required for the talk scheduled at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 25

Ada Limón: “Can you release your power in a way that it feels not like it’s taking anyone else’s away, but that it compels you further into the future?” 

The Carrying is a staff pick by The Paris Review: "Each poem is a widening lens of the world, an unburdening of the things we carry deep within ourselves." Her fourth book, Bright Dead Things, was named a finalist for the National Book Award, a finalist for the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award, and a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. Listen to Limón's interview with Poetry Foundation.

Limón serves on the faculty of Queens University of Charlotte Low Residency MFA program, and the online and summer programs for the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center.
