The Writers' Workshop presents a reading with Simone White.
Simone White is the author of the full-length collections House Envy of All the World (2010), and or, on being the other woman (2022), as well as the chapbooks Dolly (2008) and Unrest (2013). Her work has been praised for its innovative complexity, allusive song, and “lyric deconstruction of desire, entitlement, blackness, the domestic, language and diction,” in the words of Anna Moschovakis. White has received fellowships from Cave Canem and was selected as a New American Poet for the Poetry Society of America. She lives in New York and teaches at the University of Pennsylvania. -- from https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/simone-white
