The Marquette Libraries offer this resource guide in support of Mary Oliver's visit to Marquette on November 12, 2012, at 4 p.m. in the AMU Monaghan Ballroom. Tickets will be available beginning Oct. 1. See Marquette's news release here.

Use the blue tabs above to discover library holdings of her poetry collections and to read interviews and articles about her life and work.

In recognition of her achievements, Marquette will confer upon Mary Oliver an honorary doctor of letters (Litt. D.) as part of the Nov. 12 event.

Ms. Oliver's new book, A Thousand Mornings, just released in October, will be available for purchase after her reading and she will sign copies upon request.
