Dante Micheaux will be in conversation with writer Celeste Schantz.

 

Dante Micheaux is the author of Circus (Indolent Books, 2018), winner of the 2019 Four Quartets Prize from the Poetry Society of America and the T.S. Eliot Foundation, and Amorous Shepherd (Sheep Meadow Press, 2010), a collection of poems. Poet Terrance Hayes writes, “Dante Micheaux’s superb poetic aptitude is wedded to an equally superb poetic amplitude.” Frost Medalist Marilyn Nelson says, “Dante Micheaux is a code-switcher in many languages. Some of his lines bring this reader close to heartbreak.” He is the recipient of a prize in poetry from the Vera List Center for Art & Politics, the Oscar Wilde Award, and fellowships from Cave Canem Foundation and The New York Times Foundation. He lives in London.
