Join us virtually for a Poetry 4 x 4, as four Boston area poets each read four of their poems this National Poetry Month.

The evening's featured poets are Jennifer Barber, Fred Marchant, Danielle Legros Georges and George Kalogeris.
 

Jennifer Barber is Brookline’s current poet laureate, and co-editor with Jessica Greenbaum and Fred Marchant of Tree Lines: 21st century American poems, forthcoming from Grayson Books in 2022. Her poetry collection The Sliding Boats Our Bodies Made will be available in 2022 from The Word Works.

Danielle Legros Georges’ The Dear Remote Nearness of You was published in 2016 by Barrow Street Press; and her Island Heart, translations of the poems of Ida Faubert, published in 2021 by Subpress Books. The former Boston Poet Laureate, she teaches at Lesley University.

George Kalogeris's most recent book of poems is Winthropos (Louisiana State University Press, 2021) and his previous collection, Guide to Greece, was also published by Louisiana State University Press. Kalogeris teaches literature and classics in translation at Suffolk University in Boston.

Fred Marchant is the author of five books of poetry, the most recent of which is Said Not Said (Graywolf). He is also the editor of Another World Instead: The Early Poems of William Stafford (Graywolf), and the founding director of the Suffolk University Poetry Center in Boston.
