Poet Carol Muske-Dukes Stars at Two Events On Feb. 15

Carol Muske-Dukes
Phoro by Audie England

Award-winning poet Carol Muske-Dukes will visit U.Va. on Feb. 15 to give a presentation about her writing at 12:30 p.m. in the Jordan Hall Conference Center and to give a public reading of her new work at 8 p.m. at the U.Va. Bookstore. Both events are free and open to the public.

Muske-Dukes’ presentation, titled “By Heart,” and co-sponsored by the Center for Humanism in Medicine and U.Va.’s Creative Writing Program, will explore love, grief, the marriage of two artists, the gift of poetry and the fragility of life itself.

She is the author of 13 books including seven volumes of poetry, two collections of essays and four novels. Her most recent book of poems, “Sparrow” (2003), influenced by the sudden death of her husband, actor David Dukes, was a finalist for the National Book Award.
