The Eagle Pond Authors’ Series will bring Jenna Le to the Silver Center on Wednesday, September 27 at 7PM for a reading of poetry.
Recently, Le’s 2016 poetry collection, A History of the Cetacean American Diaspora, took second place in the 2017 Elgin Awards. The award was hosted by the SFPA, or Science Fiction & Fantasy Poetry Association.
This is far from her first award, however. Her writing blog gives a greater scope of her acclaim:
Her poetry, fiction, essays, book criticism, and poetry translations have been published widely. Le has been a Minnetonka Review Editor’s Prize winner, a two-time Alpha Omega Alpha Pharos Poetry Competition winner, a William Carlos Williams Poetry Competition finalist, a Michael E. DeBakey Poetry Award finalist, a Pamet River Prize semifinalist, a four-time Pushcart Prize nominee, a Best of the Net nominee, and a Rhysling Award nominee.
In addition to being a poet, Le is a physician and educator working in the Upper Valley Region of New Hampshire. She experiments in visual art, which is featured on her blog.
To see Le in action before the 27th, check out the video below featured in The Huffington Post‘s Video Reading Series:
Each Eagle Pond Authors’ Series reading is followed up with a book signing; books will be available for purchase at the event. Tickets are free and available in advance at the Silver Center ticket booth.
