Tracy K. Smith in The Green Room, Maui

On Friday, February 9th, 2018, The Merwin Conservancy presents an intimate evening with current U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith in The Green Room, an environmental and literary salon series on Maui that is hosted by the Conservancy and fosters a reverence for language, nature, and imagination.

Tickets are on sale now at: http://mauiarts.org/merwin

Tracy K. Smith is the author of the critically acclaimed memoir, “Ordinary Light,” and three books of poetry. Her collection, "Life on Mars," won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize and was selected as a New York Times Notable Book. Smith was the recipient of a Rona Jaffe Writers Award in 2004 and a Whiting Award in 2005.

In 2014 the Academy of American Poets awarded Smith with the Academy Fellowship, awarded to one poet each year to recognize distinguished poetic achievement. She is the Roger S. Berlind ’52 Professor in the Humanities, and director of the creative writing program at Princeton University.

In 2017, Smith was appointed the 22nd United States Poet Laureate, and her next collection of poems, "Wade in the Water," is forthcoming in 2018.

The presentation will be followed by an intimate Q&A with the audience and book signing at a courtyard reception with dessert, champagne, book fair, and live musical entertainment.

This event is generously presented by FIM Group. All ticket sales benefit Maui the nonprofit Merwin Conservancy.
