Poet Brenda Hillman is scheduled to speak today at UC Berkeley’s Morrison Library. The author of six books, including “Loose Sugar” and “Cascadia,” Morrison uses language to explore the edges of consciousness, and examines the fine line between the sensual and the spiritual.
Hillman teaches at St. Mary’s College in Moraga, and has received two Pushcart Prizes, a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, and the Delmore Schwartz Memorial Award for poetry.
Hillman appears as part of Lunch Poems: A Noontime Poetry Reading Series, organized by professor Robert Hass of UC Berkeley.
The readings are scheduled 12:10 to 12:50 p.m. the first Thursday of each month, at Doe Library, UC Berkeley. Free.
Other poets to be featured this year will be Li-Young Lee on Nov. 7 and Mary Ruefle on Dec. 5.
