Join us for this dynamic pairing of two poets and take home a unique letterpress broadside of the poets' work. A reception accompanies the reading, and a limited-edition broadside print of work by each poet is produced by an artist at the Center and distributed at the reading.

She is co-editor of the multilingual anthology Reversible Monuments: Contemporary Mexican Poetry (Copper Canyon P) and translator and editor of the bilingual volume Poems by Gerardo Deniz (Taller Ditoria/ Lost Roads).

Anna Moschovakis is the author a book of poems, I Have Not Been Able to Get Through to Everyone (Turtle Point Press 2006), a finalist for the Norma Farber First Book Award, and of several chapbooks, including The Blue Book (Phylum Press), Dependence Day Parade (Sysiphus) and No Medea (a Tinyside from Big Game Books). Her translations from the French include texts by Henri Michaux, Claude Cahun, Theophile Gauthier, Pierre Alféri, and Blaise Cendrars; her translation of The Engagement by Georges Simenon was published in 2006 by NYRB Classics and her translation of The Possession by Annie Ernaux is forthcoming from Seven Stories Press. She is also editor, designer, administrator, and printer at Ugly Duckling Presse.
