Poet, playwright, and translator Ariana Reines will present a free reading at 8 p.m. Monday, Dec. 9, in the Frank Conroy Reading Room of the Glenn Schaeffer Library, adjacent to the Dey House.

Born in Salem, Mass., Reines earned a B.A. from Barnard College, and completed graduate work at both Columbia University and the European Graduate School, where she studied literature, performance, and philosophy.

Her books of poetry include The Cow, which won the Alberta Prize from Fence Books; Coeur de Lion; and Mercury. Her poems have been anthologized in Against Expression and Gurlesque. Known for her interest in bodily experience, the occult, new media, and the possibilities of the long or book-length form, Reines has been described as “one of the crucial voices of her generation” by Michael Silverblatt on NPR’s Bookworm.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all UI-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to attend this reading, call the the Iowa Writers’ Workshop in advance at 319-335-0416.
