Please join the In Your Ear Reading Series for a reading by Farrah Field, Chris Nealon, and Shafer Hall at 3PM on Sunday, February 21.
Farrah Field's poems have appeared in many publications including the Mississippi Review, Typo, Harp & Altar, La Petite Zine, Copper Nickel, Effing Magazine, and Ploughshares and are forthcoming in Mantis, Cannibal, and Memorious. Rising, her first book of poems, won Four Way Books' 2007 Levis Prize. She lives in Brooklyn where she co-hosts a reading series called Yardmeter Editions. She blogs at adultish.blogspot.com.
Chris Nealon grew up in Binghamton, NY, and moved out west in the mid-90s, where he lived for about 15 years, teaching at UC Berkeley. He recently moved back east, and teaches in the English Department at Johns Hopkins. He is the author of two books of poems, The Joyous Age (Black Square Editions, 2004), and Plummet (Edge Books, 2009), as well as two books of literary criticism: Foundlings: Lesbian and Gay Historical Emotion before Stonewall (Duke UP 2001), and The Matter of Capital: Poetry and Crisis in The American Century (forthcoming from Harvard UP, 2011). He lives in Washington, DC.
Shafer Hall is a senior poetry editor for Painted Bride Quartely, a poetry curator and host for the Frequency Reading Series, and a poetry bartender for poets in New York, but mostly he's a poetry writer from Texas who loves to write poetry. His poems and collaborations have appeared in the Indiana Review, Eyeshot.net, Unpleasant Event Schedule, and many other journals. His first collection of poems is available from No Tell Motel.
Admission is $5.00.
