Julie Hanson

Julie Hanson is the author of Unbeknownst, an Iowa Poetry Prize winner and 2012 Kate Tufts Discovery Award finalist, and The Audible and the Evident (Ohio University Press, February 2020), selected by Maggie Smith for the Hollis Summers Poetry Prize. Her work has earned fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Vermont Studio Center, as well as publication in New Ohio Review, VOLT, Plume, Copper Nickel, and other journals.

The poems in Julie Hanson’s second award-winning book inscribe deep stillness on a world of harmonies in motion, illustrating the movement between and among seasons and tasks, work and leisure, solitude and people, and all through private life as it intersects with the products and noises of industry and nature.

Julie Hanson will read from her books, Unbeknownst and The Audible and the Evident, Tuesday, October 19, at 7 p.m. in the Iowa City Public Library, meeting room A. This event is in-person and also available on Zoom. Click here to access the Zoom link.
