Online Program: Poets House Presents: Diane Glancy
May 29, 2020 | 12:00 pm
Poets House Presents is a series of 10 minute readings by poets that are live streamed on Twitter & posted on our Archive, Facebook and YouTube on Wednesdays and Fridays at Noon–to keep our community thriving. Free!
Poet, novelist, and playwright Diane Glancy reads from her new book, Island of the Innocent: A Consideration of the Book of Job (Turtle Point Press, 2020), from her home in Shawnee Mission, KS.
Diane Glancy was born in Kansas City, Missouri, to a Cherokee-descent (non-enrolled) father and an English-German-American mother. At a young age, she had a hard time with determining her identity because of how her Indian lifestyle did not relate to what she was learning in school. Glancy decided to reclaim her Cherokee descent and found it easy to express in her poetry.
