Dolly’s is pleased to welcome poet Jodie Hollander for a reading the evening of Tuesday, July 21st at 6:30 PM!
Jodie Hollander, originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was raised in a family of classical musicians. She studied poetry in England and has published her work in England, Australia and the US. Her poems have appeared in journals such as The Poetry Review, The Dark Horse, Verse Daily, Ambit, Agenda, The Raintown Review, and the Best Australian Poems of 2011.
She is the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship in South Africa, a National Endowment for the Arts Grant in Italy, a Hawthornden Fellowship in Scotland, and attended the MacDowell Colony in February of 2015. Her debut publication, The Humane Society, was released with Tall-Lighthouse (UK) in November 2012 — Romantic, surreal and tender, it paints a family portrait that is a mixture of memoir, ghost story and artistic obsession, as well as being an elegy for an older, more mannered, world.
