Joelle Biele (Elizabeth Bishop)
Decatur Library Auditorium
March 23, 2011, 7:15 P.M.
We are proud to announce an important event of special interest to everyone who loves poetry. We welcome Joelle Biele, the editor of an acclaimed new book, ”Elizabeth Bishop and The New Yorker: The Complete Correspondence.” The editor will talk about Bishop, and we have four distinguished Atlanta poets who will read from her work: Tom Lux, Bruce Covey, Laurel Snyder and Sharan Strange. This ”superbly edited collection” traces the correspondence between Bishop and her editors at the New Yorker, Katherine White (wife of E.B. White) and Howard Moss. The magazine published many of Bishop’s finest poems, and the correspondence permits an in-depth look at the process of writing and editing poetry. Joelle Biele is a prize-winning author and poet. We will have copies of this book available for sale and signing at this event.
