Poet Ada Limón will be at Readers' Books on Wednesday, May 11th to present from her latest collection, The Hurting Kind. There will be a 5:30 reception followed by the reading at 6:00. In this, her sixth collection, Ada explores the interconnectedness—between human, and nonhuman, ancestors and ourselves. Ada is a Sonoma native and her poetry often honors the valley that helped raise her. Her moving and transcendent work resonates with all readers and leaves a lasting impression; she's truly a poet not to miss.
Ada Limón is the author of six books of poetry, including The Carrying, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry. Her book Bright Dead Things was nominated for the National Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award. Her work has been supported most recently by a Guggenheim Fellowship. She grew up in Sonoma, California and now lives in Lexington, Kentucky where she writes, teaches remotely, and hosts the critically-acclaimed poetry podcast, The Slowdown. Her new book of poetry, The Hurting Kind, is forthcoming from Milkweed Editions in May 2022.
