Lauren Camp with Erin Malone & Martha Silano
Santa Fe poet Lauren Camp reads today from her book, One Hundred Hungers (Tupelo Press), a work of imagination, research and myth about her father’s childhood in Baghdad, and her interaction with the rituals and language of his Jewish-Iraqi culture. The book, a memoir told in poetry, won the Dorset Prize. She has two upcoming poetry collections, Turquoise Door (3: A Taos Press, 2017) and Took House (Tupelo Press, 2019), and is a staff writer for Poets Reading the News and the producer/host of “Audio Saucepan” on Santa Fe Public Radio.

She lives in Seattle and is editor of Poetry Northwest. Martha Silano is the author of What the Truth Tastes Like (Two Sylvias Press), Reckless Lovely (Saturnalia Books) and other books.
