Forrest Gander, whose “unflinchingly curious mind” the New York Times has praised, and whom the Washington Post called “restlessly experimental, precise and hallucinatory,” is a writer, translator and editor. His 2011 poetry collection Core Samples from the World was a finalist for both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award. His other books include two novels, numerous poetry collections, many collaborative works and an essay collection. Gander’s essays have appeared in The Nation, The Boston Review and the New York Times Book Review. He lives in California. The event will be followed by refreshments.
