First Books Month: Anne-Marie Thompson Reads from and Talks about Audiation
This week on The Missouri Review Soundbooth we continue our First Books series by talking to poet Anne-Marie Thompson. Listen in as Thompson reads poems from and then discusses her new book, Audiation.
Audiation won the 2013 Donald Justice Poetry Prize. Prize judge Marilyn Nelson says, “The poems in Audiation are steeped in the experience of classical music, as a performer, as one who loves a performer, and as a devoted listener. Ripe with sensual details and informed by wide knowledge, the poems are spirited as well as spiritual.”
Anne-Marie Thompson lives in Columbia, Missouri.
Her work has appeared in Birmingham Poetry Review, Southeast Review, Southwest Review, Iron Horse Literary Review and other journals. She holds an MFA in poetry from Johns Hopkins University and a bachelor of music in piano performance from Texas Christian University.
The Missouri Review Soundbooth is a weekly podcast series that brings you readings and interviews with authors, editors and agents about what’s happening in the literary world. Subscribe to our free podcast on iTunes.
