All the way from her home in Rome, Italy, Moira Egan returns to her Baltimore birthplace to read some of her sexy, award-winning poems. Egan has published four collections of poetry: Cleave (WWPH, 2004); La Seta della Cravatta/The Silk of the Tie (Edizioni l’Obliquo, 2009); Bar Napkin Sonnets (The Ledge, 2009); and Spin (Entasis Press, 2010).
She also co-edited Hot Sonnets: An Anthology with BrickHouse Books’ Clarinda Harriss, and her work has appeared in many journals and anthologies in the U.S. and abroad, including Best American Poetry 2008 and The Book of Forms. With her husband, Damiano Abeni, she has published award-winning books in translation by the likes of John Barth, Mark Strand, and John Ashbery. Egan will read from her forthcoming collection, Strange Botany/Botanica Arcana, as well as from the prize-winning sequence, Hot Flash Sonnets.
