Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Space, in Chains and a finalist for the 2015 Kingsley Tufts Award, Laura Kasischke is the author of both poetry and popular novels. She’ll discuss how writing poetry and prose are utterly opposite ways of approaching material, language, and life, drawing on her own work as well as that of other multigenre writers.

Laura Kasischke is the author of ten collections of poetry, most recently The Infinitesimals (2014), which was a finalist for The Kingsley Tufts Award. Her collection Space, in Chains (2012) won the National Book Critics Circle Award. Additionally, she has published ten books of fiction, including Mind of Winter and If a Stranger Approaches You: Stories. She is Allan Seager Collegiate Professor of English Language and Literature at the University of Michigan.
