NEW DATE – Sunday May 17, 3PM: Krysia Jopek and Sharon Lattig
Krysia Jopek’s first novel, Maps and Shadows (Aquila Polonica 2010), winner of a Silver Benjamin Franklin award in historical fiction, narrates from four points of view—her father’s family’s deportation to Siberia in 1940 and the twelve-year aftermath. Her chapbook Hourglass Studies (Crisis Chronicles, 2017), a sequence poem in twelve sections, was nominated for a 2018 Pushcart in Poetry. She has published poems in Meta/Phor(e)/Play, Crisis Chronicles Cyber Litmag, Split Rock Review, The Woven Tale Press, Great American Literary Magazine, Columbia Poetry Review, Fence, Prairie Schooner, Syllogism, and The Wallace Stevens Journal. She founded Diaphanous Press in 2017 and diaphanous micro, an e-journal of literary and visual art in 2018. She hold four degrees: a Master’s of Philosophy in English from CUNY Graduate Center, a Master’s of Fine Arts in Literary Fiction from Albertus Magnus, a Master’s of Arts in English and Bachelor’s of Arts in English from UConn.
Sharon Lattig writes poetry and writes about poetry: her work has appeared in numerous journals, and her new book, Cognitive Ecopoetics: A New Theory of Lyric, is set to be published this year. She holds a Ph.D. in English and an M.A. in Creative Writing and teaches at UConn, Stamford. In her other life, she is a professional figure skater.
Reading starts with an Open Mike.
