Ada Limón

Monday, April 11, 2022

7:30 Shelton Auditorium

The poems of Ada Limón explore the large, unavoidable subjects that come with being human: death and loss, art and faith, and the strange, vulnerable miracle of existing in a body. Her writing is precise in its attention to the details of our everyday, intimate, private lives while at the same time being conscious of broader political and social concerns that intersect with those lives.

Limón has published five books of poetry, most recently The Carrying, winner of the 2018 National Book Critics Circle Award in Poetry. Her other books are Lucky Wreck (2006), This Big Fake World (2006), Sharks in the Rivers (2010), and Bright Dead Things (2015), which was a finalist for the National Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award. Her new book of poetry, The Hurting Kind, is forthcoming from Milkweed Editions in May 2022.

Limón grew up in Sonoma, California, and now lives in Lexington, Kentucky, where she writes, teaches remotely, and hosts the critically-acclaimed poetry podcast, The Slowdown.
