THREE AMERICAN POETS
Tuesday, October 22nd
Doors @ 7:30PM, Reading @ 8PM
Seriously, this is not to be missed. Join us for a very special event at Argo Bookshop: Three amazing poets, Kate Greenstreet, Paige Ackerson-Kiely & DJ Dolack will be visiting our shop as part of a tour of mid-October readings across Eastern Canada and New England.
A graphic artist and painter, Kate Greenstreet is the author of the poetry collections case sensitive (2006) and The Last 4 Things (2009), which she published with a DVD of short films based on the book. Her chapbooks include Learning the Language (2005), Rushes (2007), This is why I hurt you (2008), and CALLED (2011).
In case sensitive, a female character, driving across the U.S. and writing in a journal, channels and intertwines her impressions of numerous other voices, including the work of other writers (Lorine Niedecker), of artists (Agnes Martin and Louise Bourgeois), a biography of Marie Curie, and a mystery story.
Greenstreet has received a New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowship, and her poems have been published in the Colorado Review, Fence, VOLT, and other journals.
Ackerson-Kiely is the author of In No One’s Land (Ahsahta Press, 2007), a book of poetry that was selected for the 2006 Sawtooth Poetry Prize by poet D. A. Powell. This book also won the award for Poets & Writers Exchange. Her second full length collection of poetry, My Love is a Dead Arctic Explorer (Ahsahta Press, 2012) began as a response to Admiral Richard E. Byrd’s memoir, Alone. Additionally, Ackerson-Kiely has produced a limited edition art folio, This Landscape (Argos Books 2010), and prose chapbook Book About a Candle Burning in a Shed (above/ground 2011).
She has been published in numerous journals such as Pleiades, Bellingham Review, Ninth Letter, jubilat, LIT, and The Laurel Review. In 2009 she was one of the featured authors in the all-poetry edition of The Laurel Review, an edition that was dedicated to the memory of poet Reginald Shepherd. She is currently a co-editor for Black Ocean’s poetry journal Handsome.
Dolack is the author of WHITTLING A NEW FACE IN THE DARK (Black Ocean, 2013). His video reviews and Tourist Trap, NYC series can be found at Coldfront Magazine.
Dolack‘s work has most recently been published in Handsome, Lonesome Fowl, and Diode. His collaborations with Allison Titus can be found in The Denver Quarterly, The Journal and Fou. His video reviews and Tourist Trap, NYC series can be found at Coldfront Magazine. He teaches writing at Baruch College and lives in Jackson Heights, Queens.
