Hiram College

Heather Hartley, Paris editor for Tin House magazine, will be visiting Hiram College on Thursday, November 11, 2010. She will be discussing her poems, essays, and interviews in the Writing House at 4:15 p.m.

Hartley’s work has appeared in “Tin House, Mississippi Review,”Post Road,” and other magazines, as well as numerous anthologies, including “Food and Booze: A Tin House Literary Feast” and “Satellite Convulsions: Poems from Tin House.” She conducts interviews for the magazine with figures like Breyten Breytenbach and Catherine Millet. She was also a finalist in the National Poetry Series and won the Summer Literary Seminars Prize.

Her debut collection, “Knock Knock” (2010), focuses on the details of everyday life. From the seemingly insignificant nature of artichokes to the difficulties of a family death, Hartley’s work encompasses a wide range of topics.

Hartley lives in Paris, where she curates Shakespeare & Company Bookshop’s weekly reading series and teaches creative writing and poetry at the American University of Paris.

Please join the Lindsay-Crane Center for an evening with this widely acclaimed writer. This event is free and open to the public.
