Awardwinning poet Paisley Rekdal will share her work in the Poetry at Bennington series, most recently Nightingale (Copper Canyon, 2019), which rewrites myths in Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

Rekdal is the author of six books of poetry. Her nonfiction works include Appropriate: A Provocation (W.W. Norton, 2021), an examination of cultural appropriation; The Broken Country: On Trauma, a Crime, and the Continuing Legacy of Vietnam (University of Georgia Press, 2017), Intimate: An American Family Photo Album (Tupelo, 2011), and The Night My Mother Met Bruce Lee: Observations on Not Fitting In (Vintage, 2000).

Her work has appeared in five editions of Best American Poetry, and she was guest editor for Best American Poetry 2020. The recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Amy Lowell Fund, and the NEA, Rekdal is a Distinguished Professor at the University of Utah and serves as Utah’s Poet Laureate.

The program is open to the public free in Tishman Lecture Hall. Bennington College requires that all guests be vaccinated and have the appropriate vaccine booster. To enter into a building on campus, guests are asked to complete a visitor form—ideally 24 hours before their arrival. Visitors who have not completed this form will be asked to show their vaccination card before entering any campus buildings. Masking indoors is required in any shared spaces.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
