Poetry evening with Rebecca Aronson, David Ebenbach, Jane Satterfield

The Ivy Bookshop

In Ghost Child of the Atalanta Bloom, Rebecca Aronson combines myth and memory, history and landscape, dream and the everyday in arresting, painterly poems that sweep the reader beyond the ordinary. Rebecca Aronson's first book, Creature, Creature, won the Main-Traveled Press poetry contest and was published in 2007. She also received the 2010 Strousse Award from Prairie Schooner. Aronson's poems have appeared in Tin House, the Georgia Review, Cream City Review, Mas Tequila Review, the Paris-American, and Quarterly West, among other places. She lives in New Mexico where she teaches writing, facilitates a community writing group, and coordinates a visiting writers’ series for Central New Mexico Community College.

David Ebenbach is the author of a full-length collection of poetry, We Were the People Who Moved, a chapbook of poetry, Autogeography, and a guide to the creative process called The Artist's Torah. He is also an accomplished fiction writer, most recently of Miss Portland, and has published three short story collections: The Guy We Didn't Invite to the Orgy and other stories, Between Camelots, and Into the Wilderness. Ebenbach holds a PhD in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an MFA in Writing from Vermont College. He teaches creative writing at Georgetown University.

Jane Satterfield’s poetry collection, Apocalypse Mix, dives into a musical, war-torn, elegiac past. It was selected by David St. John for the 2017 Autumn House Poetry Prize. She is the author of three other books of poetry: Her Familiars, which was a finalist for the Julie Suk Award for best poetry book on an independent press; Assignation at Vanishing Point, which received the Elixir Press Book Award; and Shepherdess with an Automatic, awarded the Towson University Prize for Literature.

The daughter of an American Air Force reservist and a British mother, Jane Satterfield grew up near Andrews Air Force Base in suburban Maryland. She is a poet, essayist, professor, and mother. She is also a fan of The Clash, The Smiths, P. J. Harvey, and more. Her literary idols include the Brontës, Sylvia Plath, Larry Levis, Angela Carter, and Michael Ondaatje. She received her education at the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop and Loyola College. Jane’s partner is poet Ned Balbo. They are the guardians of two cats.
