Please join us as Tiferet Talk Host Melissa Studdard speaks with fabulous poet and creative nonfiction writer Molly Peacock about a variety of topics, including her newly released book The Paper Garden: Mrs. Delany Begins Her Life's Work at 72.

Former Poet-in-Residence at the American Poets' Corner and former President of the Poetry Society of America, Peacock is one of the creators of Poetry in Motion on subways and buses throughout North America. As well, for ten years Peacock conducted quarterly poetry circles on Wisconsin Public Radio.

She is the author of numerous books in the genres of poetry, memoir, creative non-fiction, and craft, as well as a one-woman staged monologue in poems, which she performed in theatres throughout North America. She is also the editor of collections of both creative non-fiction and poetry.  

Among her awards are Danforth Foundation, Ingram Merrill Foundation, Woodrow Wilson Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, and New York State Council on the Arts Fellowships.

Currently Peacock is on the faculty of the Spalding University Low-Residency Master of Fine Arts program and serves as Series Editor of The Best Canadian Poetry in English, published each year by Tightrope Books in Toronto.

In a starred review, Booklist says of The Paper Garden, "Peacock does with words what Delany did with scissors and paper, consummately constructing an indelible portrait of a late-blooming artist, an exalted inquiry into creativity, and a resounding celebration of the 'power of amazement'."
