Alison Pelegrin is the author of two previous poetry collections, including Big Muddy River of Stars, which won the 2006 Akron Poetry Prize. The recipient of fellowships from the Louisiana Division of the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, her poems have appeared in Poetry, Ploughshares, Copper Nickel, and Barn Owl Review. She teaches English at Southeastern Louisiana University and lives in Covington, Louisiana.

Hurricane Party

"Hurricane Party is an original and rewarding work, a masterful follow-up to Big Muddy River of Stars, and a livewire, compelling contribution to American poetry. No other poet sounds like Pelegrin, and that's the sure sign of a writer at the top of her game." - Elton Glaser
