Amit Majmudar: Summer Literary Picnics

  • Thurber House 77 Jefferson Avenue Columbus, OH, 43215 United States (map)

Cleveland native Dr. Amit Majmudar was named the first Poet Laureate of Ohio in 2016. His poetry and prose has appeared in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Poetry Magazine, and The Antioch Review, among others. His first poetry collection, 0º, 0º, was a finalist for the 2009 Poetry Society of America’s Norma Farber First Book Award. His second poetry collection, Heaven and Earth, won the 2011 Donald Justice Prize. His latest book of poetry is Dothead, a captivating exploration of selfhood. It is a profoundly satisfying cultural critique, united across a wide range of tones and forms, the poems inhabit and explode multiple perspectives, finding beauty in every one. Majmudar is also the author of two novels, Partitions and The Abundance. He is a diagnostic nuclear radiologist who lives in Dublin, Ohio, with his wife and three children.
