The Gaines Center for the Humanities at the University of Kentucky invites you to join us for a reading with celebrated poet Nikky Finney

About this Event

The new decade is here and so is Nikky's new book. Love Child's Hotbed of Occasional Poetry ( pub date April 15, 2020) is her first poetry collection since winning the National Book Award in 2011. In addition to the poems, there are hotbeds, a horticulture term introducing her readers to her journals, the place where most of her poems have always found their calcium and strong knees. There are also artifacts, images and photographs, that assist the words in composing how the poet's poet-life came to be. Over the last 30 years each and every Nikky Finney book has always been wonderfully different but this long awaited new minglement of word and image crafts a new kind of American poesy.
