Timmy Straw & Sara Nicholson

November 10, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Prairie Lights

Sara Nicholson will read from April.

“Intimate and expansive, with dazzling wit and music throughout, Nicholson’s poems fit the stars, the sun, the trees, and their sap in the same frame.”–Michael Andor Brodeur

Sara Nicholson is the author of What the Lyric Is and The Living Method, published by The Song Cave. Her work has appeared in the Chicago Review, Harper’s, Poetry, the New York Times, and the Yale Review. In 2018, she was the Holloway Poet-in-Residence at the University of California, Berkeley. She lives in Boise, Idaho.

Former UIowa Visiting Writer Timmy Straw will read from The Thomas Salto. “With a visionary attention to the lived sensorium of the present and its historical givens, The Thomas Salto reveals a brilliantly nuanced view of individual agency in the age of falling empires. If the future is survivable, this is what its poetry sounds like.”–Elizabeth Willis

Straw’s poems, essays, and translations appear in Yale Review, Jacket2, Paris Review, Annulet, and Chicago Review. A Fulbright and Iowa Arts Fellowship recipient, Straw is a graduate student in Comp Lit at Penn.
