December 21, 2007 | CUNY Lecture Series, Hunter College

Award-winning poet Lynn Emanuel is the author of three books of poetry, most recently Then, Suddenly, which has been described as a fusion of “the noir and the postmodernist impulses.” An English professor at the University of Pittsburgh, Emanuel has been a judge for the National Book Awards and is the recipient of two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. As part of the Distinguished Writers Series at Hunter College, Emanuel reads selections from her work. She says of Then, Suddenly, “I wanted to write a book that grew eyes, that looked up at the reader.”
