Nocturne – a reading and Q&A with poet Jodie Hollander

09/05/2023 @ 14:00 - 15:30


Poet Jodie Hollander will follow her workshop in the library with a reading and Q&A in the afternoon.

Set in a technicolour world of dreams, ghosts, classical music, and Key West storms, Jodie Hollander’s compelling second collection – ‘Nocturne’ charts the emotional journey of the daughter of a professional classical pianist. These bold and arresting poems, rich with musicality, and fierce in their emotional honesty, chart the complicated repercussions of family dysfunction and musical obsession while traversing the landscape of the human condition and exploring the need for refuge in the natural world.

Jodie’s work has appeared in numerous poetry journals Her debut full-length collection, My Dark Horses, was published with Liverpool University Press & Oxford University Press. Nocturne will be published in Spring 2023. She is the recipient of a MacDowell fellowship and a Fulbright fellowship in South Africa.
