The Poetry Night Reading Series welcomes Sandra Gilbert at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, at the John Natsoulas Gallery, 521 First St. in downtown Davis.

Gilbert is a distinguished professor emerita of English at UC Davis and the author of more than 20 books, including eight collections of poetry.

She has taught at many universities, including Stanford and Princeton, and is recognized as one of the most accomplished feminist literary scholars and theorists writing today, a news release said. In addition to her works of poetry, in recent years Gilbert has published a memoir, an anthology of elegies and a critical study: “Rereading Women: Thirty Years of Exploring Our Literary Traditions” (W.W. Norton, 2011). Her most recent volume of poems, “Aftermath,” was published by Norton in 2011.

Over the years, she has been presented with many awards and accolades, including the presidency of the Modern Language Association. As a result of her longtime collaboration on several projects with Susan Gubar, a professor of English at Indiana University, they were both named a “Ms. Woman of the Year” in USA Today’s “People Who Made a Difference” in 1985.

Gilbert has been a recipient of Guggenheim, Rockefeller, NEH and Soros Foundation fellowships, and she has held residencies at Yaddo, MacDowell and Bellagio. In 1988, she was awarded a doctor of letters by Wesleyan University, and in 1990, she was (with Karl Shapiro) a co-recipient of the International Poetry Forum’s Charity Randall Award.

More recently, Gilbert won a Patterson Prize and an American Book Award for her poetry books “Kissing the Bread” and “Ghost Volcano,” respectively.

Gilbert divides her time between Berkeley and Paris.
