The Book of Hours

Marianne Boruch, a Purdue University professor of creative writing, has won the $100,000 Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award for her “The Book of Hours,” which is published by Copper Canon Press.

The award, given annually to a mid-career poet by Claremont Graduate University, is one of the largest monetary poetry prizes in the United States.

Boruch’s poetry collections include “Grace, Fallen from,” “Poems: New and Selected,” “A Stick that Breaks and Breaks” and “Moss Burning.” She’s written two books of essays on poetry — “In the Blue Pharmacy” and “Poetry’s Old Air” — and a memoir, “The Glimpse Traveler.”
