FRIDGE-WORTHY NEWS: THE BACK-TO-SCHOOL EDITION

Rebecca Wadlinger‘s translation of Norwegian poet Gro Dahle’s collection A Hundred Thousand Hours is forthcoming from Ugly Duckling Presse in 2013.

Erin Elizabeth Smith‘s second book, The Naming of Strays, was published by Gold Wake Press this past October. Erin also writes that Sundress Press will be publishing Christine Jessica Margaret Reilly‘s chapbook, Too Animal, Not Enough Machine, at the end of the year.  Christine’s work was also featured as a broadside series as part of the December issue of Stirring (http://www.sundresspublications.com/stirring/archives/v13/e12/index.html).

Kimi Cunningham Grant‘s memoir, Silver Like Dust, was recently released from Pegasus Books. She will also be reading at Bucknell Hall alongside fellow alumni K.A. Hays and Tyler Mills as a part of the Stadler Center Visiting Writers Series.

Speaking of readings, the 2012-2013 Stadler Center Visiting Writers series has just been announced! This year’s Stadler Center events will include visits by Naomi Shihab Nye as Sojka Visiting Poet and Terrance Hayes as Poet-in-Residence, along with many other poets and writers. Check out the schedule here.

Announcing The Poetry Path: From Shara McCallum herself: “I am delighted to announce the opening of the Poetry Path, a public art project at the Stadler Center for Poetry.  The Poetry Path is a walking tour which gives visitors the opportunity to read poems by contemporary poets and hear the poems read in the poets’ voices.  Please visit the website to learn more, including to read and hear the poems featured on the 2012-13 path: www.bucknell.edu/PoetryPath.”

And, hey, did you know the Stadler Center is turning 25 this year? Here’s to 25 more years of poetry lovin’ and supportin’. 🙂
