To celebrate the publication of her new book Diamonds, Camille Guthrie joins Mark Wunderlich for a special virtual evening of poetry.
These two Bennington College colleagues and poets will share work from their recent books, Camille Guthrie's Diamonds and Mark Wunderlich's God of Nothingness.
Diamonds presents a woman in midlife on the edge. In hilarious and heartbreaking poems, Camille Guthrie writes about the trials and surprises of divorce, parenting, country life--and the difficulties and delights of being alone, looking at art, and falling in love.
God of Nothingness is a magnificent book of hope and resolve written out of profound losses, by award-winning poet Mark Wunderlich.
Camille Guthrie is the author of three books of poetry: Articulated Lair: Poems for Louise Bourgeois (Subpress, 2013), In Captivity (Subpress, 2006), and The Master Thief (Subpress, 2000).
