Reading by Rose McLarney
September 20 2019
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
The public is invited to
a reading by Rose McLarney, author of Forage.
Forage, McLarney’s third collection of poetry, weaves together themes she loves: home, heritage, the South, animals, water, the environment.
Rose McLarney is the author of
Its Day Being Gone, winner of the National Poetry Series, and The Always Broken Plates of Mountains, published by Four Way Books.
A Literary Field Guide to Southern Appalachia, which she is co-editing, is forthcoming from University of Georgia Press. Rose has been awarded fellowships by the MacDowell Colony, Bread Loaf and Sewanee Writers’ Conferences; served as Dartmouth Poet
in Residence at the Frost Place; and has received other prizes such as Fellowship of Southern Writers’ New Writing Award for Poetry. Her work has appeared in publications including
The Kenyon Review, The Southern Review, New England Review,
Prairie Schooner, The Missouri Review, The Oxford American magazine, and many other journals. Rose earned her MFA from Warren Wilson’s MFA Program for Writers and has taught at the college, among other institutions. Currently, she is Assistant
Professor of Creative Writing at Auburn University and Co-Editor in Chief and Poetry Editor of the
Southern Humanities Review.
The event is free, open to the public, and will be followed by refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Co-sponsored by the Department of English in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn
University. The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities at Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben Street, Auburn.
