Poets Patricia Caspers and Annie Stenzel
Read at the John Natsoulas Gallery
March 3rd at 8PM
The Poetry Night Reading Series is proud to welcome poets Annie Stenzel and Patricia Caspers on Thursday, March 3rd at 8 P.M. They will be performing at the John Natsoulas Gallery at 521 1st Street in Davis.
Annie Stenzel has lived on several continents, and currently makes her home in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her poems have recently appeared in the print journals Kestrel, Ambit, Catamaran Literary Reader, and Quiddity, in the online journals Lunch Ticket and Unsplendid, and in an anthology titled Patient Poets.
Her translations of the German poet, Hilde Domin, have been published in Parthenon West and Two Lines. Her book-length manuscript, Refugees from the Diorama, has made it as far as the semi-finals for more than one contest, and her work has twice been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. She is also a letterpress printer, never happier than when her hands are covered in ink.
Patricia Caspers is the founding editor of West Trestle Review, and is published widely in journals such as Ploughshares, PANK, Quiddity and Anderbo. Her full-length poetry collection In the Belly of the Albatross (Glass Lyre Press, 2015) was nominated for a Pushcart prize. She won the Nimrod/Hardman Pablo Neruda prize for poetry and was the recipient of a Hedgebrook residency. She lives in Auburn, California with her family where she’s a reporter for the Auburn Journal.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive early at the John Natsoulas Gallery to secure a seat, and to sign up for a spot on the Open Mic list. The Open Mic starts at 9 PM, and the after-party at about 10. The Poetry Night Reading Series, hosted and produced by Andy Jones, occurs on the first and third Thursday of every month at the John Natsoulas Gallery.
