The Author's Forum presents "The Selvage: A Conversation with Linda Gregerson and Daniel Herwitz," where U-M Professors Gregerson and Herwitz discuss Gregerson's new collection of poetry. In eloquent poems about Ariadne, Theseus, and Dido, the death of a father, a bombing raid in Lebanon, and in a magnificent series detailing Masaccio’s Brancacci frescoes, The Selvage deftly traces the “line between” the “wonder and woe” of human experience.
A 2007 National Book Award finalist and a recent Guggenheim Fellow, Linda Gregerson is the Caroline Walker Bynum Distinguished University Professor of English Language and Literature. She teaches creative writing and Renaissance literature.
Daniel Herwitz is Frederick G L Huetwell Professor, Professor of History of Art, Professor of Philosophy, Professor of Comparative Literature, and Professor of Art and Design at U-M and holds an honorary position at the University of Cape Town.
The Author's Forum is a collaboration between the U-M Institute for the Humanities, University Library, Great Lakes Literary Arts Center, and Ann Arbor Book Festival. Additional support for this event is provided by the U-M English Department.
