A Tribute to Siv Cedering
Join us for a celebration of the work of the life of Siv Cedering (1939-2007), the Swedish-born American poet and novelist. Her sculpture, entitled “Blueprint for an Ascension,” will be dedicated by her husband, Hans Van de Bovenkamp, and installed at Poets House. Cedering was the author of four books of translation and 18 books of poetry and prose, including her collection, Cup of Cold Water, in which she paired her poems with her photographs, and The Blue Horse and Other Night Poems.
