UNC Asheville will welcome 2023 United States Poet Laureate Ada Limón to campus for an evening of poetry on Monday, March 20 at 7 p.m. in the Blue Ridge Room, Highsmith Union.
Ada Limón, the 24th poet laureate of the United States, is the author of six books, including “The Carrying,” which won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry. Her book “Bright Dead Things” was nominated for the National Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award. Her work has been supported most recently by a Guggenheim Fellowship.
Limón grew up in Sonoma, California, and now lives in Lexington, Kentucky, where she writes, teaches remotely and hosts the critically acclaimed poetry podcast, “The Slowdown.” Her new book of poetry, “The Hurting Kind,” is out now from Milkweed Editions.
