A Poetry Coup. Ari Banias Reads at Berkeley Books.

August 18, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The latest in the bookshop’s series ‘Poets To Watch Out For.’

I am honored that Ari accepted my invitation to read in the bookshop.

If you are not away on holiday, you’ll want to be here for this.

Here’s his bio from his webpage:

“Ari Banias is the author of Anybody (W.W. Norton, September 2016). He was born in Los Angeles, grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, and currently lives in Berkeley, CA. He holds a BA from Sarah Lawrence College, and an MFA in poetry from Hunter College, where he was a teaching fellow. The author of a chapbook, What’s Personal is Being Here With All of You (Portable Press @ Yo-Yo Labs, 2012), his poems appear in American Poetry Review, Boston Review, Guernica, The Offing, Poetry, The Volta, and as part of the exhibition Transgender Hirstory in 99 Objects. He is the recipient of the 2014 Cecil Hemley Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America and the 2012 Campbell Corner Prize, and has been awarded fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, the Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing, and Stanford University’s Wallace Stegner program.”

And here’s a link to a review of Anybody, his recent collection of poems:
