Henrietta Goodman - All That Held Us


Wednesday, April 11: Missoula poet and University of Montana professor Henrietta Goodman joins us for a reading from her new book of poetry, All That Held Us. 7pm.

Henrietta Goodman’s most recent book of poetry is All That Held Us, published in 2018 by BkMk Press as winner of the John Ciardi Prize. Against the backdrop of a repressive and eccentric all-female Southern household, this memoir-based collection of linked sonnets explores the myths and truths of family, sexuality, and love that shape adult identity. Goodman’s previous books are Hungry Moon and Take What You Want. Her poems and essays have appeared in New England Review, Southern Humanities Review, Gulf Coast, Mid-American Review, and other journals. She grew up in North Carolina, then moved to Missoula, where she has lived for the past 25 years. She teaches at the University of Montana and at Texas Tech University.
