Timothy Schaffert,
In recognition of National Poetry Month, acclaimed poet and Nebraska native Erin Belieu will read from her work. Her most recent collection is COME-HITHER HONEYCOMB. She is also the author of: INFANTA, winner of the National Poetry Series and chosen one of the best books of the year by the Washington Post, National Book Critics Circle, and Library Journal; ONE ABOVE & ONE BELOW, winner of the Midland Author’s and Ohioana Poetry Prizes; BLACK BOX, a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize; and SLANT SIX.

Book critic Dwight Garner in the New York Times says “Belieu is a poet who can’t abide pretension,” and “She’s a comedian of the human spirit, in league with poets from Frank O’Hara, to Deborah Garrison, to Tony Hoagland.”

Belieu’s poetry has appeared in the New Yorker, the New York Times, Poetry, Atlantic Monthly, Slate, Ploughshares, Kenyon Review, the Academy of American Poet’s Poem a Day, the American Poetry Review, and in the Best American Poetry anthology series. Her prizes include the Rona Jaffe Foundation fellowship, and she was recently honored with the Barnes and Noble Writers For Writers Award, recognizing Belieu’s long career of literary activism, as well as AWP’s George Garrett Prize, honoring her “outstanding literary citizenship” in service to the national writing community.
