Georgia native Eve Hoffman teaches poetry at Emory University. Her most recent book, Memory and Complicity is a collection of autobiographical poems that tells the stories of a young Eve who grew up by the Chattahoochee River.
Hoffman stopped by On Second Thought to give her recommendations for our "Southern Reading List" — a series of authors and readers sharing books that define and reflect the South.
Hoffman recommended Dorothy Allison's Bastard Out of Carolina, Natasha Tretheway's Thrall: Poems and Trudier Harris's Summer Snow: Reflections from a Black Daughter of the South.
