Our second annual showcase of new books by Grad Center students featured Andy Fitch, author of Sixty Morning Walks; Erica Kaufman, author of Censory Impulse; Anna Moschovakis, author of I Have Not Been Able to Get Through to Everyone; and Simone White, author of Dolly. The authors read from their books and interviewed each other, and then we had a lively question-and-answer session.

We are proud to have a visit from two acclaimed Canadian poets who have both done remarkable things with the lyric essay form.

The authors will read from their work and participate in a discussion.

We’re very excited to announce that the editors of Poems for the Millennium Volume Three: The University of California Book of Romantic & Postromantic Poetry will be with us to read from and discuss the new anthology, along with Richard Sieburth who will read his translations from the book. Following the reading, Richard Sieburth and Maureen McLane from NYU and the Graduate Center’s Mary Ann Caws will take part in a roound-table discussion. “Rothenberg and Robinson have dedicated this project to an intensification and expansion of the vital and vivacious contexts of the ongoing project of human thought. They present us not with the fixity of a canon but with the unfixity of our world.” — Lyn Hejinian
