Come to the Henry today for this month’s Faculty Focus Tour with Chelsea Jennings! At noon Jennings will lead a a 30 minute tour of Collected Stories: Books by Laurie Anderson.

Chelsea Jennings received her MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she is currently pursuing a PhD in English. She has published in the Madison Review, Poet Lore, the Bridport Prize Anthology, and Best New Poets 2007, among others.

Last quarter, Jennings taught ENGL 200: Reading Lit Forms and focused on the Visual Page & the Material Book. Jennings challenges how we read books, looking at the visual surface and material pages as it relates to the literary meaning within the text. Her exploration of books as an art aligns with the with of Lori And

erson in Collected Stories: Books by Laurie Anderson. Anderson’s exhibition looks at her interest in storytelling, drawing, and technology. Her work explores, quite similarly to Jennings class, book format and explored it in a variety of media ranging from handmade and traditionally bound works on paper to audio and electronic formats.

Jennings will lead a tour today at noon of Collected Stories: Books by Laurie Anderson as a part of our faculty focus tour, which occurs on the third Wednesday of every month.
