Join us tomorrow, Thursday March 22nd, in Gelman 102 for the next installment of the
Jenny McKean Moore Reading Series
A poet, performer, writer, and educator, Lauren Camp will read from the latest of her three books of poetry,
One Hundred Hungers,
a collection that "explores the lives of a first-generation Arab-American girl and her Jewish-Iraqi parent. One Hundred Hungerstells overlapping stories of food and ritual, immigration and adaptation, evoking Baghdad in the 1940s at a time when tensions began to emerge along ethnic and religious lines. She also draws upon memories of Sabbath dinners in America to reveal how family culture persists."
Read further praise for One Hundred Hungers and peruse her previously published works, including The Dailiness, This Business of Wisdom, and I Am and You Are on her website.
A former visual artist with a strong following for her creative writing workshops in Santa Fe, NM, Lauren also hosts Audio Saucepan, "a spicy mash of border-defying jazz, Americana, contemporary classical and world music with interpretive readings of contemporary poetry," on KSFR Santa Fe Public Radio.
