Event Description

"BODY INK: A Poetry Reading with Marion Cohen and Miriam Kotzin" will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 30, at 12 p.m. in the James E. Marks Intercultural Center (3225 Arch Street).

Marion Cohen teaches “Mathematics in Literature” in the Drexel Honors College. Miriam Kotzin teaches creative writing in the Department of English and Philosophy. Cohen’s latest poetry collection is “The Project of Being Alive” (New Plains Press, AL) and Kotzin’s latest is “Debris Field” (David Robert Books, OH).

Cohen is the author of 26 books, including two controversial memoirs about spousal chronic illness, a trilogy diary of late-pregnancy loss, and poetry about the experience of mathematics. Kotzin’s Debris Field features poems range from open verse to tight, traditional sonnets to poems about nature and memory. Her “clear-eyed view of the world is both dark and funny. She is also deeply invested in the bitter beauties of the natural world from which she draws a number of her startling images. In Debris Field, she expands her singular journey that has made her one of the best poets of her generation (Richard Burgin)."
