Join Poets House and the Academy of American Poets for this special opportunity to engage with the Academy’s Chancellors as they take up three timely topics in conversations that will provide insight, inspiration, and a deeper understanding of poetry in our country and world today.
Distinguished poets J. Mae Barizo, and Marie Howe gather to read poems in honor of Melissa Green, who will close the evening by reading from her new book, Magpiety: New & Selected Poems. Marie Howe writes: “Melissa Green might well be a 21st century version of Emily Dickinson, poet of ecstatic states and extremity. These are poems ‘scratched in blood,’ written by a survivor, a poet, a woman pulled back to life.” (rmharris)… (més)
Celebrate Mother’s Day by exploring the many facets of love through poetry performances, workshops, and artist demonstrations in the Islamic Art galleries, followed by a Sunday at the Met reading and discussion with New York State Poet Marie Howe, renowned poet and editor Kazim Ali, and Columbia University scholar Frances Pritchett.

Marie Howe’s poetry is intimate and often elegiac, achieving both introspection and perspective. Bob Hicok’s poems are soulful, reflective, and humanistic gems. Howe teaches Creative Writing at Sarah Lawrence College, Columbia, and New York University. She is the author of three volumes of poetry, Kingdom of Ordinary Time, The Good Thief, and What the Living Do, and the co-editor of a book of essays, In the Company of My Solitude: American Writing from the AIDS Pandemic. Hicok is an Assistant Professor of English at Virginia Tech and has published five books of poetry, the latest being This Clumsy Living. A wine reception with a book sale and signing will follow the reading. Tickets: $12. RSVP to www.folger.edu/poetry or 202-544-7077. (SqueakyChu)… (més)
