Award-winning poet and novelist Mary Mackey will perform from her new book of poetry at 8 p.m. Thursday at the John Natsoulas Gallery, 521 First St. in downtown Davis.

Mackey has published seven collections of poetry, including “Sugar Zone,” winner of the 2012 PEN Oakland Josephine Miles Award for Literary Excellence (Marsh Hawk Press 2011), and her latest collection, “Travelers With No Ticket Home” (Marsh Hawk Press 2014).

She is also the author of 13 novels, including “Immersion” (Shameless Hussy Press 1972), which has just been re-published by the Authors Guild.

Mackey’s poems have been praised by Wendell Berry, Jane Hirshfield, Dennis Nurkse, Ron Hansen, Dennis Schmitz and Marge Piercy for their beauty, precision, originality and extraordinary range. Four times, Garrison Keillor has featured her poetry on his program, “The Writer’s Almanac.”

Mackey’s works have been on The New York Times and San Francisco Chronicle bestseller lists, has sold more than 1.5 million copies and been translated into 12 foreign languages.

She is past president of the West Coast branch of PEN, a Fellow of the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and professor emeritus of English at Sacramento State.

Mackey earned a bachelor’s degree from Harvard and a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. Learn more about her, read her blog interview series, “People Who Make Books Happen,” and sample her work at www.marymackey.com.

The open mic will begin at 9 p.m., and the after-party at de Vere’s Irish Pub will start at 10 p.m.

The Poetry Night Reading Series — coordinated and hosted by Andy Jones, the city of Davis’ new poet laureate — takes place on the first and third Thursdays of each month at the John Natsoulas Gallery.
