Translations From Bark Beetle (2014) is Jody Gladding’s third full-length collection of poetry. The diverse collection of objects she uses in writing her poems make them both curious and exhilarating to read, reflecting both her work as a translator of French literature and her recurring interest in nature. Her other books include Rooms and Their Airs (2009) and Stone Crop (1993) . Her poems have appeared in ecopoetics, Orion, Terrain.org, and other journals. Gladding has taught at Cornell University, was Resident Poet at the Frost Place, has received a Whiting Writers Award, and was a Stegner Fellow at Stanford. She lives in East Calais, Vermont.
This week’s sponsor is Mark Alexander/Alexander Rare Books. Light refreshments to follow author talk.
