Winter 2009 Word Stream Reading Series presents Santa Fe poet Carol Moldaw, author of “The Widening.” (She is also married to poet Arthur Sze who will be reading and doing a workshop at UNM–see other post.)moldaw-author-photo1

The Widening is a poetic novel written in self-contained, cut-to-the-quick vignettes that add up to an intimate and haunting portrait of a 1970s girl on the cusp of womanhood. While her parents’ generation tabooed sexual exploration, especially for girls, she is eager to embrace it—but whether it is a vehicle for self-knowledge, self-liberation, or self-escape, is the unanswerable question at the heart of the book. Carol Moldaw is the author of four books of poetry, including “The Lightning Field,” which won the 2002 Field Poetry Prize. She is the recipient of a Lannan Foundation Marfa Writer’s Residency, a Pushcart Prize, and a National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellowship. She lives in Pojoaque, New Mexico with her husband and daughter and teaches at Stonecoast, the University of Southern Maine’s low residency MFA program.
