Michelle Boisseau’s fifth book of poems, Among the Gorgons, makes “graceful and unexpected leaps from personal to mythic, tender to satiric, and tragic to comic,” judges wrote in awarding the University of Missouri-Kansas City professor the Tampa Review Prize for Poetry in 2015.
 
Boisseau, a faculty member at UMKC since 1995 and also the recipient of two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, shares her work and its inspirations in a public discussion with Angela Elam of public radio’s New Letters on the Air. The event celebrates Women’s History Month.
