Oliver began writing poetry as a teenager and eventually published over thirty volumes of poetry. Her work was heavily influenced by nature and was often deeply introspective. She won the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 for American Primitive and the National Book Award in 1992 for New and Selected Poems. Join us in celebrating her life with some materials from our library collection.
