NPR labels her a “poet’s poet” and Billy Collins calls her voice “fresh and daring”. Her newest collection,Geometry of the Restless Herd, is out in May of 2024. Her poetry has appeared in numerous magazines, including The Atlantic Monthly, The New Republic, The New Yorker, and The Paris Review. 
The evening will be hosted by poet and translator Nidia Hernandez and Jennifer Barber, the current poet laureate of Brookline, and is co-sponsored by the New England Poetry Club and the Brookline Commission for the Arts.
