Anne Babson – CCL Author Talk Series
April 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
In partnership with Blue Cypress Books, Creative Community League’s “Author Talks” series hosts local authors and academics writing about pertinent issues important to women and families in Louisiana and the Gulf South. We kick-off the series during National Poetry Month with poet Anne Babson on Sunday, April 10 at 4pm. The event is free and open to the public.
Anne Babson is an award-winning poet whose work has been published on five continents. She is the author of four poetry collections — The White Trash Pantheon, Polite Occasions, Messiah, and later this year, Unsolicited Press will release her new book about the rise of extremism in America and the efforts of some women to thwart it — The Bunker Book. Her play about gun culture in the South, Reenactment, was published in 2019 and her opera about the complexities of intersectional female identities, co-written with composer Su-Lian Tan, Lotus Lives, has been produced in New York, Boston, Montreal, and will be released on video later this year. She is the president of The Women’s National Book Association of New Orleans and teaches writing and literature at Southeastern Louisiana University.
