Poetry in Motion
On Monday, November 6, join the Office of the Provost and Pace Poet-in-Residence Charles North for the fall edition of Poets @ Pace, featuring Jiwon Choi and Amanda Nadelberg.
Each semester, the Office of the Provost and Pace Poet-in-Residence Charles North bring some of the world’s most talented and thought-provoking poets to campus. The fall 2017 Poets @ Pace reading, which will take place on Monday, November 6, features two original and acclaimed young poets, both of whom are currently coming off extremely successful publications. Swing by the Bianco Room and be sure to check out the stylings of:
Jiwon Choi lives in Brooklyn, teaches preschool at the Educational Alliance on New York City’s Lower East Side, and is an active urban gardener and garden administrator. Her first collection of poems, One Daughter is Worth Ten Sons (Hanging Loose Press, 2017), has received a great deal of praise.
"Pissed off, stripped down, and deadly accurate, these poems spare no one. One of the joys of Jiwon Choi's poems is that her acerbic wit, rather than limiting experience and shutting down inquiry, instead evokes the riddle of our complex, contradictory human selves."
"Drop me off anywhere with Jiwon Choi—these wildly radiant poems of music and magic reel us in, fairy tale realisms mingled with elemental sound songs."
—Naomi Shihab Nye
Amanda Nadelberg was born in Massachusetts and currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she works as an editor. She has published three books of poems, most recently Songs from a Mountain (Coffee House Press, 2016), as well as three chapbooks. She was selected in 2011 as a "New American Poet" for the biennial feature of the Poetry Society of America, and she is the recipient of a Fund for Poetry award.
"Nadelberg's touch is nimble without being precious, colorful without being tacky, and she confronts loneliness without dwelling, making her sorrow sting all the more with its deftness…her ebullient language captures the giddiness of love and youth."
"Songs from a Mountain is a dizzying achievement that rings out loud and precise and clear."
Poets @ Pace will take place on November 6 from 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m. in the Bianco Room, One Pace Plaza. It will include a Q&A, book signing, and refreshments. The event is free and open to the public.
