Scripps Presents @Noon Series: Mary-Alice Daniel

Join us for an in-depth discussion with Mary-Alice Daniel as she shares her unique insights and experiences. Daniel was born near the Niger/Nigeria border, then raised in England and Tennessee. Mass for Shut-Ins, her first book of poetry, was released as the 117th Yale Younger Poets Prize in March 2023. Earlier in 2023, Ecco/HarperCollins published her first book of prose, A Coastline Is an Immeasurable Thing: A Memoir Across Three Continents, which was People’s Book of the Week and one of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Nonfiction Books of the Year. An alum of Yale University and the University of Michigan, she received a PhD in literature and creative writing from the University of Southern California. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at Brown University, she served as the inaugural Visiting Writer-in-Residence at Washington University in St. Louis. A Cave Canem Fellow, she holds the 2024 Mary Routt Endowed Chair of Writing at Scripps College.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn from a talented writer. She will also be signing copies of her latest publication after the event.
