This Library Journal thing happened, which is very cool. We’ve been named Movers & Shakers for 2012. They shouted out Mandy, Michael & I but obviously, the library is the glorious manifestation of the hard work of everyone who’s helped build The People’s Library and kept it going through the winter. Mad props to everybody who ever helped out. And thank you, Library Journal for noticing.

Also, it’s National Poetry Month. I’ve got a few poems out in this month’s Brooklyn Rail.

 

New Year fast approaching

In poetry news, I’ve got a response to Noah Eli Gordon‘s The Source up at Futurepost.

And the New Year is upon us, with poetry marathons all over the place. I’ll be reading at the Poetry Project between 3 and 4 pm. I’m very excited to hear as many people as possible at both the Project Marathon and Kaleidoscope at the Bowery Poetry Club.

2012 is going to be a very exciting year!

How do we theorize a poetics of motherhood?  Attentive to divergent experiences of motherhood and using the maternal as a field that hovers outside neat categorization, this symposium will investigate the poetics of the maternal self and body through the experiences of women of color, adoptive mothers and single mothers.
