Please join us at the next Powell's North reading featuring the poet Gillian Conoley and emerging writers from Lake Forest College.

Gillian Conoley
's latest book, her fifth full-length collection, is Profane Halo; Barbara Guest said of it, "I am taken by surprise by the wit and jeopardy, by the way an ending is avoided on the surface of the book's meaning. I am excited by the triumph of this writing." An earlier book of poems Tall Stranger was nominated for a National Book Critics' Circle Award; among her other honors are a Fund for Poetry Award, several Pushcart awards, and the Jerome J. Shestack Award in Poetry. She's also been anthologized in Best American Poetry, Counterpath's Lyric Postomodernisms, and W.W. Norton's new anthology, American Hybrid. She edits Volt.
