Description:
Poet and former UM professor Prageeta Sharma is returning to Missoula for a brief visit! Montgomery Distillery is thrilled to host her along with poet Sarah Aronson, host of MTPR's wildly popular literary show and podcast, "The Write Question." Both have new books out, so this is our chance to celebrate their marvelous work.

She is the founder of the conference Thinking Its Presence: Race, Creative Writing, Literary Studies and Art. A recipient of the 2010 Howard Foundation Award, she has taught at the University of Montana and now teaches at Pomona College.

Sarah Aronson is the author of And Other Bodiless Powers (New American Press 2019), selected by Andrew Grace for the New American Poetry Prize.
