Katonah Poetry Series presents Carl Phillips
4:00 pm | Adults |

Carl Phillips, author of fourteen acclaimed poetry collections, will read for the Katonah Poetry Series (KPS). “Carl Phillips’s passionate and lyrical poems read like prayers, with a prayer’s hesitations, its desire to be utterly accurate, its occasional flowing outbursts.” (Judges’ Citation, 1998 National Book Awards) Phillips’ poetry collections have claimed numerous prestigious awards: The Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Thom Gunn Award for Gay Male Poetry, the Lambda Literary Award (twice), the Los Angeles Times (Poetry) Book Prize, the Theodore Roethke Memorial Foundation Award, the PEN Center USA Award, the Samuel French Morse Poetry Award. His work has appeared in more than sixty anthologies and in such top magazines as the New Yorker, Paris Review, the Atlantic Monthly, and The Nation, among many, many others. His 2018 title, Wild is the Wind (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), has been described as follows: “The writing dazzles with transcendent metaphors, complex connections and linguistic flourishes. It also draws on some familiar Phillips motifs—navigation and the sea, the sky and land—to explore the possibility that love can bring both stability and freedom.” (Elizabeth Lund, Washington Post)

Carl Phillips was born in Everett, Washington, and educated at Boston University, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and at Harvard University where he earned degrees in creative writing and in the classics. He is Professor of English and of African and Afro-American Studies at Washington University in St. Louis. He has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Library of Congress and the American Academy of Poets, as well as an Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Academy of American Poets Prize, and a Pushcart Prize. He has been inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and served as Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets from 2006 to 2012.

The reading begins at 4:00 p.m., followed by an audience Q&A, reception and book signing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Katonah Museum of Art

October 21, 2018 – January 27, 2019

From the beginning of recorded time, jewelry has both articulated identity as well as heralded status. In recognition of the universal passion for and power of jewelry, the KMA opens the 2018 fall season with Outrageous Ornament: Extreme Jewelry in the 21st Century curated by Jane Adlin, who in her role of curator of modern and contemporary design at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, organized the Jewels by JAR and Cartier 1900-1939 exhibitions. In Outrageous Ornament, the KMA presents provocative work by internationally renowned artists which expand the boundaries and our understanding of personal adornment.

This exhibition is made possible in part through the generous support of Vickie Morris, Tony & Judy Evnin, Rochelle & Mark Rosenberg, and Deborah Mullin & John Chatzky.
