Award-winning poet, novelist and nonfiction author Kim Addonizio will read selections from her poetry and fiction at 7:30 p.m. March 17 in Tribble Hall’s DeTamble Auditorium at Wake Forest University.

She has published two novels, “Little Beauties” and “My Dreams Out in the Street,” and two instructional books on writing poetry: “The Poet’s Companion” (with Dorianne Laux), and “Ordinary Genius: A Guide for the Poet Within,” which was released in February.
Her work has appeared widely in literary journals and anthologies, and she has been honored with two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Pushcart Prize and the John Ciardi Lifetime Achievement Award.
