Auguries & Divinations: Heather Treseler’s Book Launch

April 23 @ 2:30 pm 5:00 pm

Auguries & Divinations, winner of the 2023 May Sarton New Hampshire Poetry Prize, tracks a young woman’s coming of age, attuned to the unspoken liabilities of women’s lives, the suburban underworld, and the energies of eros. The narrator claims a life of her own making, drawing on the classical practice of augury, or observing birds to discern human fate.

Her essays appear in Boston Review and the Los Angeles Review of Books, and in eight books about American poetry. Recipient of the W. B. Yeats Prize, Frontier Poetry’s prize, and the Editors’ Prize at The Missouri Review, she is professor of English at Worcester State University and a resident scholar at the Brandeis Women’s Studies Research Center.
