Merrill House writer reads virtually Saturday
The latest event featuring a James Merrill House Writer-in-Residence takes place virtually on Saturday when poet/writer/teacher Desiree C. Bailey reads from her work. The presentation is accessible on the Merrill House Facebook or YouTube pages.
A native of Trinidad and Tobago now living in New York — except, ah, when she's staying in the Merrill House! — Bailey's debut poetry collection, "What Noise Against the Cane," won the 2020 Yale Younger Poets Prize, and her work has also appeared in such publications as "Best American Poetry 2015," Callaloo, and Washington Square Review. She was also the recipient of the 2013 Poets and Writer's Amy Award.
