Join series curator Tamas Panitz, and poets Pierre Joris and Brenda Coultas this Sunday at the Hudson Opera House!
Although born and raised in Luxembourg, Pierre Joris is an internationally recognized poet who, writes Jerome Rothenberg, “has invaded the American language, not to plunder but to enrich us with his presence.” Recently published books include Barzakh: Poems 2000–2012 (Black Widow Press); Breathturn into Timestead: The Collected Later Poetry of Paul Celan (FSG) and A Voice full of Cities: The Collected Essays of Robert Kelly (with Peter Cockelbergh; Contra Mundum Press)
Winner of the Norma Farber First Book Award in 2004 for her highly original A Handmade Museum, Brenda Coultas has since published a number of poetry collections, including The Tatters and The Marvelous Bones of Time.
Reading Series Curator Tamas Panitz is a graduate of the Bard College Written Arts Program and co-editor of The Doris Magazine with Billie Chernicoff. He didn’t have to look far to assemble some of the best poets, novelists and literary translators for the first season of this reading series.
