Department of English to present poet Rebecca Lindenberg
Ohio Northern University’s Department of English will present Rebecca Lindenberg in the Elzay Gallery of Art on Thursday, April 19, at 7 p.m. Lindenberg will be reading from her first book of poetry, “Love, An Index.”
Lindenberg wrote “Love, An Index” in memory of her former partner, the poet Craig Arnold, who tragically fell to his death in Japan while researching his poetic obsession, volcanoes. Lindenberg’s book is her elegy for Arnold.
McSweeney’s Books is launching its poetry series with “Love, An Index.” Despite its recent release, the book has already garnered great reviews from Vanity Fair and Weave Magazine. “Love, An Index” is currently No. 25 on the Poetry Foundation’s contemporary best-seller list.
Lindenberg has earned fellowships at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center and The MacDowell Colony. Previously, she was awarded the Richard Scowcroft Prize in Creative Nonfiction by Victor LaValle and the Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Prize.
The event is free and open to the public.
