Danielle Deulen to share poetry and memoir at “Readings at the Nick” 

Danielle DuelenDanielle Deulen, an award-winning poet and memoirist, will read from her current work at Linfield College.

Deulen will read on Monday, Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m., in the Austin Reading room of the Jereld R. Nicholson Library at Linfield College. 

Deulen will read from her memoir, “The Riots,” and her latest book of poetry, “Our Emotions Get Carried Away Beyond Us.” “The Riots,” which won the AWP Prize in Creative Nonfiction and the GLCA New Writers award, chronicles Deulen’s childhood and young adulthood as the eldest daughter of a Latina mother and an abusive Anglo father. In “Our Emotions Get Carried Away Beyond Us,” winner of the Barrow Street Book Contest, Deulen writes poems that are, as one reviewer dubbed them, as “superbly ambitious as they are fiercely intimate.”  

Deulen is also the author of “Lovely Asunder” and “American Libretto.” Her poems and essays have appeared in many journals, including The Iowa Review, The Kenyon Review, The Utne Reader, and The Missouri Review, and several anthologies, including Best New Poets and After Montaigne: Contemporary Essayists Cover the Essays.  

This reading is a part of the “Readings at the Nick” series. The lecture is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Linfield Nicholson Library and the Linfield English department. For more information, contact Susan Barnes Whyte at 503-883-2517, swhyte@linfield.edu
