PeregrineGoodwin, Caroline (University of Alaska Anchorage. Bookstore, 2015-12-14)Born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, Caroline Goodwin received her MFA in Poetry from the University of British Columbia and was awarded the Wallace Stegner fellowship in poetry at Stanford University in 1999. Today, while fulfilling her role as the first appointed Poet Laureate in San Mateo County, California, Caroline teaches in the MFA Writing and the undergraduate Writing and Literature programs at California College of the Arts in Oakland, California, and also at the Stanford Writer's Studio. Her first collection of poetry, Trapline, was published in 2013. In a review of Peregrine, poet Louise Mathias writes: "Both a charm against, and a love song to the fleeting, Goodwin masterfully weaves together disparate sources--Metallica and magic, ravines and wildflowers, this work is lovely and terrifying, singular, and true."
