Three poets with Graywolf Press read their work at D.C.'s Folger Theatre in a celebration of the press’s 45th anniversary and the opening of the 51st season of the O.B. Hardison Poetry series. Fanny Howe has written more than 30 works of poetry and prose, including _Love and I, The Needle's Eye, Come and See_, and "The Winter Sun". Her "Second Childhood" was a finalist for the National Book Award, and her fiction has been honored as a finalist for the Man Booker International Prize. Her latest collection is "Love and I: Poems". Ilya Kaminsky is the author of "Deaf Republic, Dancing in Odessa", and the co-editor of The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry. He has received a Whiting Award, a Lannan Literary Fellowship, and a Guggenheim Fellowship, and was named a finalist for the Neustadt International Prize for Literature. His work has been translated into more than 20 languages. Danez Smith’s "Don’t Call Us Dead" was the winner of the Forward Prize for Best Collection, the Midwest Booksellers Choice Award, and a finalist for the National Book Award. Smith’s third collection, "Homie", will be published by Graywolf in Spring 2020.
