Dana Levin to Read in Santa Fe

Dana Levin’s first book, In the Surgical Theatre, was awarded the 1999 American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize and went on to receive nearly every award available to first books and emerging poets. The Lost Angeles Times says of her work, “Dana Levin’s poems are extravagant...her mind keeps making unexpected connections and the poems push beyond convention...they surprise us.” Her poetry has appeared in many anthologies and magazines, including The Atlantic Monthly, Poetry, Conduit and the Iowa Review. She has received fellowships and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, PEN, the Witter Bynner Foundation and the Library of Congress, the Rona Jaffe Foundation, and the Whiting Foundation. A 2007 Guggenheim Fellow, Levin teachers in the Creative Writing and Literature Department at the College of Santa Fe. Her most recent book is Wedding Day (Copper Canyon Press).
