Poetry From the Library Presents An Afternoon with Allison Adair and Tiana Clark

Join acclaimed poets Allison Adair and Tiana Clark who will read from their prize-winning debut collections and talk about the development of the poems in these books.

Register for the Zoom Link



Allison Adair’s
debut collection, The Clearing, selected by Henri Cole for Milkweed’s Max Ritvo Poetry Prize, was named a New York Times "New and Noteworthy" book. From the midst of the Civil War to our current era, Adair charts fairy tales that are painfully familiar, never forgetting that violence is often accompanied by tenderness. Described by Cole as “haunting and dirt caked,” her unromantic poems of girlhood, nature, and family linger with an uncommon, unsettling resonance. Adair’s poems have appeared in American Poetry Review, Arts & Letters, Best American Poetry, Kenyon Review, Waxwing, and ZYZZYVA; and have been honored with the Pushcart Prize, the Florida Review Editors’ Award, the Orlando Prize, and first place in the Mid-American Review Fineline Competition. Originally from central Pennsylvania, Adair lives in Boston, where she teaches at Boston College and Grub Street.



Tiana Clark’s
debut full-length poetry collection, I Can’t Talk About the Trees Without the Blood (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2018) is winner of the 2017 Agnes Lynch Starrett Prize and the 2020 Kate Tufts Discovery Award. 
In these poems Clark dives into personal and public history, mythology, her own ancestry, to see the braided trauma of the broken past and its continued effects on black lives. Clark is also the author of Equilibrium (Bull City Press), selected by Afaa Michael Weaver for the 2016 Frost Place Chapbook Competition. She is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellow and a Pushcart Prize. Her writing has appeared in or is forthcoming from The New Yorker, Poetry Magazine, Kenyon Review,The Atlantic, American Poetry Review, and elsewhere. She teaches at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville.

Author Talk: Pamela Painter, author of Fabrications: new and selected stories The Fab

Join author Pamela Painter for a discussion of her short story collection Fabrications on Tuesday, March 23 at 7:00 p.m.  Pamela Painter is the author of five story collections, Getting to Know the Weather, which won the Great Lakes College Award Award for First Fiction, The Long and Short of It, Wouldn’t You Like to Know, Ways to Spend the Night, and her newest collection Fabrications:  New and Selected Stories published in Fall 2020. 

She is also the co-author with Anne Bernays of the widely-used textbook, What If?  Writing Exercises for Fiction Writers, which has included the work of over 150 Emerson students.  She was also a founding editor of StoryQuarterly, now housed at Rutgers, and she is a Founding Donor of the Flash Fiction Archive, at the Ransom Center, University of Texas, Austin. 

Painter’s stories have appeared in The Atlantic, Five Points, Harper’s, Kenyon Review, Matter Press, New Flash Fiction Review, Ploughshares and SmokeLong Quarterly, among others and in numerous anthologies, such as Sudden Fiction, Flash Fiction, From Blues to Bop:  A Collection of Jazz Fiction,  Four Minute Fictions, Flash Fiction Forward, MicroFiction, Nothing Short of 100, and New Micro

Beginning in the late 80s, Painter was perhaps the first writer to teach workshops entirely devoted to the short short story at Emerson College in Boston. Many of her students have published stories, won flash fiction awards and become publishers themselves of flash fiction. 

Painter has received grants from The Massachusetts Artists Foundation and the National Endowment of the Arts, has won three Pushcart Prizes and Agni Review’s  John Cheever Award for Fiction.  Painter’s stories have been presented on National Public Radio, and on stage by Stage Turner, Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre, and in Los Angeles, New York City and London by Cedering Fox’s Word Theatre Company. Her stories also appear on well-known artist Anthony Russo’s YouTube channel CRONOGO.
