Angie EstesAngie Estes, right, an American poet and Pulitzer Prize finalist, will read from her latest book of poetry, “Enchantée,” March 24.

Estes will hold a Q&A at 4 p.m. in the Willis Library, Forum. A reading and book signing will follow at 8 p.m. in the Business Leadership Building, Room 180. The Barnes & Noble UNT Bookstore will be selling Estes’ work at the reading.

The event is part of UNT’s Visiting Writers Series sponsored by the creative writing progam of the Department of English.

“Enchantée” was a finalist for the 2014 UNT Rilke Prize, which recognizes a book that demonstrates exceptional artistry and vision written by a mid-career poet and published in the preceding year. It was also a finalist for the 2015 Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award and named the winner of the 2014 Audre Lorde Prize for Lesbian Poetry from the Publishing Triangle.

Estes has written four other books of poetry. Her first book, “The Uses of Passion,” (1995) was the winner of the Peregrine Smith Poetry Prize. She next wrote “Voice-Over,” (2002) which won the 2001 FIELD Poetry Prize and the 2001 Alice Fay di Castagnola Prize from the Poetry Society of America. “Chez Nous” (2005) followed, and her fourth book, “Tryst,” (2009) was selected as one of two finalists for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry.

Her work has appeared in Boston Review, Paris Review, Ploughshares and TriQuarterly. She is the recipient of several awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Pushcart Prize and the Cecil Hemley Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America.

In addition, she has received fellowships, grants and residencies from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, the American Academy in Rome, the California Arts Council, the Macdowell Colony and the Ohio Arts Council.

Estes graduated from the University of Oregon with both her master’s and doctoral degrees in English. She has been a professor at California Polytechnic State University, Oberlin College in Ohio, and The Ohio State University. She currently serves as a faculty member of the low-residency master of fine arts program at Ashland University in Ohio.
