Poet to give reading at Lyndon House

The Georgia Review will host a Georgia Poetry Circuit reading by internationally acclaimed poet, translator and editor Sholeh Wolpé Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. at the Lyndon House Arts Center. The event, which is open free to the public, is part of UGA’s Spotlight on the Arts festival.

Wolpé was born in Iran and spent her teen years in Trinidad and the U.K. before settling in the U.S. She is the recipient of a 2013 Midwest Book Award and the 2010 Lois Roth Persian Translation Prize. Her eight books include her most recent collection, Keeping Time with Blue Hyacinths.

Wolpé will visit Athens as one of the stops on her statewide Georgia Poetry Circuit tour.
