Live From Prairie Lights: Andrea Cohen

Poet Andrea Cohen will read from Unfathoming.

“Andrea Cohen’s poems have always been rigorously crafted and deft in their insight. Along comes Unfathoming, which marks a new depth in her work. While these poems are engaged in our ancient struggle to find meaning in the wake of loss, they also nod to the foolishness that makes finding meaning itself the struggle. ” —Alice Sebold

Andrea Cohen’s poetry collections include Furs Not Mine, winner of the 2015 Golden Crown Award for Poetry, The Cartographer’s Vacation, winner of the Owl Creek Poetry Prize, Long Division, and Kentucky Derby. She directs the Blacksmith House Poetry Series in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the Writers House at Merrimack College.
