Heather McHugh, Zell Distinguished Poet in Residence Lecture

Heather McHugh is Pollock Professor of Poetry at the University of Washington, and a core faculty participant in the low-residency MFA at Warren Wilson College in Asheville, North Carolina. Of her many books of translation, poetry, and essays, the most recent are Upgraded to Serious, Glottal Stop (poems of Paul Celan, with co-translator Nikolai Popov), and Broken English: poetry and partiality. She's a former chancellor of the Academy of American Poets, a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and was in 2009 awarded a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fellowship. In 2012 she founded the non-profit CAREGIFTED, which supports respite services for long-term full-time family caregivers (http://caregifted.org/).

The author will be available to sign books after the lecture. As always, books will be available for purchase on site.

UMMA is pleased to be the site for the Department of English Program in Creative Writing Zell Visiting Writers Series, which brings outstanding writers each semester. The Series is made possible through a generous gift from UM alumna Helen Zell (’64). For more information, please see http://www.lsa.umich.edu/english/grad/mfa/mfaeve.asp
