Jane Huffman

March 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Writers’ Workshop graduate Jane Huffman will read from her new book of poetry, Public Abstract, winner of the APR/Honickman First Book Prize selected by Dana Levin. “In Jane Huffman’s poems, I feel the impassioned psychic venturing of Emily Dickinson, the wit of Kay Ryan, the fragmented surreal of Jean Valentine, and the playfulness and bravado of Gertrude Stein. Public Abstract is a striking debut.” —Dana Levin
