Elliott Bay Book Company says
One of the country’s most esteemed and honored poets, Rae Armantrout, as part of spending time here teaching in the University of Washington, Bothell creative writing and poetics program, gives this reading here tonight. A Pulitzer Prize-winner, among other honors, she is the author of fourteen collections of poetry, including the just-published Partly: New and Selected Poems, 2001 - 2015 (Wesleyan University Press).

“Hoopskirts, star jasmine, synchronized swimming, Russian icons, a ceramic fish face, electrons and photons: in these poems, everything is interconnected, thought through, deeply felt and expressed in the most precise and necessary words. Rae Armantrout is one of our most inventive and magnetic poets, and she never disappoints: with inspired patience, she embraces the strangeness of our familiar world and refashions it into something new and utterly transporting.” -Lydia Davis

"These potent, compact meditations on our complicated times reveal Armantrout’s observant sensibility, lively intellect, and emotional complexity. Including some of her most brilliant pieces, this generous volume affirms Armantrout’s reputation as one of our sharpest and most innovative writers." -Publisher's Weekly
