LEWISTON — As part of Bates College’s Language Arts Live series of literary readings, award-winning poet and naturalist Elizabeth Bradfield will read from her work Thursday, Feb. 11. The event is open to the public at no cost.

 Bradfield, who is also a visual artist and Web designer, focuses her poetry on both the self and the greater natural world.

Author of “Interpretive Work” and “Approaching Ice,” she has received fellowships from Stanford University’s Wallace Stegner Program, the Bread Loaf Writer’s Conference and the Vermont Studio Center. “Interpretive Work” won the 2009 Audre Lorde Award in Lesbian Poetry and was a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award, celebrating lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender literature.

Bradfield has a master’s degree in poetry from the University of Alaska, Anchorage, where she lived for five years. She now lives on Cape Cod.

The reading will be at 7:30 p.m. in Skelton Lounge, Chase Hall, 56 Campus Ave.
