Karen Rigby at First Books 2012

DEAR READER: WHAT I STARTED TO TELL YOU / HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH HUNGER.
-Chinoiserie, by Karen Rigby


karen_rigby_300_dpi.jpgKaren Rigby's first book of poetry, Chinoiserie, was the winner of the 2011 Sawtooth Poetry Prize, judged by Paul Hoover and published by Ahsahta Press.

Poet Alice Fulton writes, "Karen Rigby's deeply imagined poems shimmer with reticence: an oddly seductive privacy that continues to unfold with each reading." She previously published two chapbooks, Savage Machinery (2008) and Festival Bone (2004). She is cofounder of Cerise Press, and received her MFA in Poetry from the University of Minnesota in 2004. She currently lives in Arizona.

Karen will appear this week at AWP Chicago, at the Ahsahta Press Book Signing
Friday, March 2, 2-3 p.m.
