The Center for Creative Photography and The UA Poetry Center co-present a series of poetry readings in conjunction with the exhibition A Portrait of Poetry: Photographs and Video by B. A. Van Sise. This event at the Center for Creative Photography features readings by Kim Addonizio, Javier Zamora and Joseph Legaspi. After the reading, there will be a short Q&A and a book signing.
Kim Addonizio has published twelve books of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. Her most recent are Bukowski in a Sundress: Confessions from a Writing Life, from Penguin, and Mortal Trash: Poems from W.W. Norton. She teaches poetry workshops online and in her home in Oakland, California.
Joseph O. Legaspi is the author of the poetry collections Threshold and Imago, both from CavanKerry Press; and three chapbooks: Postcards, Aviary, Bestiary, and Subways. He cofounded Kundiman (www.kundiman.org), a national nonprofit organization dedicated to nurturing generations of writers and readers of Asian American literature.
Javier Zamora is a Radcliffe Fellow at Harvard University and holds fellowships from CantoMundo, MacDowell, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Poetry Foundation, and Stanford University. Unaccompanied is his first collection.
