The Massachusetts Center for the Book has announced that Jeffrey Harrison’s Into Daylight has been chosen as one of six “Must Read” books in poetry for 2015.

In April, Harrison spent two days visiting the Westminster School as the 15th Westminster Poet. Read more.

Jeffrey Harrison was awarded a fellowship from the Bogliasco Foundation for the fall of 2014 and spent a month at the Luguria Study Center in Bogliasco, Italy.

Incomplete Knowledge made the BookSense top ten list for 2007 as well as the Poetry Foundation’s best seller list and was one of two runners-up for the 2008 Poets' Prize, which was won by A. E. Stallings for Hapax. All three of the finalists got very strong support, out of a field of more than forty nominated books.

Jeffrey Harrison is available to give readings, interviews, visit schools, or teach workshops; contact by email: jeffrey.harrison@comcast.net
