Meet Author and Poet Maggie Smith

In Conversation with Dave Lucas

Join us for an evening with Maggie Smith as she discusses her latest book, Keep Moving.

When Maggie Smith, the award-winning author of the viral poem “Good Bones,” started writing daily Twitter posts in the wake of her divorce, they unexpectedly caught fire. In this deeply moving book of quotes and essays, Maggie writes about new beginnings as opportunities for transformation. Like kintsugi, the Japanese art of mending broken ceramics with gold, Keep Moving celebrates the beauty and strength on the other side of loss. This is a book for anyone who has gone through a difficult time and is wondering: What comes next?

Maggie Smith is the award-winning author of several books of poetry including Good BonesThe Well Speaks of Its Own PoisonLamp of the BodyThe List of Dangers, and Nesting Dolls. A 2011 recipient of a Creative Writing Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, Smith has also received several Individual Excellence Awards from the Ohio Arts Council, two Academy of American Poets Prizes, a Pushcart Prize, and fellowships from the Sustainable Arts Foundation and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. She has been widely published, appearing in The New York TimesTin HouseThe Gettysburg ReviewThe Southern Review, and more.

Dave Lucas will be joining Maggie Smith in conversation. Lucas's first book of poems, Weather, received the 2012 Ohioana Book Award for Poetry. He has been awarded a Creative Workforce Fellowship from the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture and a 2016 Cleveland Arts Prize. His poetry has appeared in such journals as The American Poetry ReviewBlackbirdThe Paris ReviewPoetrySlateThe Threepenny Review and Virginia Quarterly Review. He served as Poet Laureate of the State of Ohio from 2018-2019.


Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.
