Hello. This week my selected topic is a relatively obscure poet as well as a contemporary. Here Name is Florence Anthony but she took the Japanese name for love, Ai. She had a career with eight published books, one of which, VICE, won the National Book award, She recieved an American book or award for SIN, and an Lamont Poetry award from the American Academy of Poets for KILLING FLOOR. She also recieved a Guggenheim Fellowship, A National Endowment of the Arts Fellowship and as late as 2009, she received a United States Ford Fellowship. She is a brilliant poet and a unique voice among modern poetry. Join me and I'll share some of her work and facts about her life. I look forward to seeing you there!
