Book Launch: In a Form of Suspension

March 28, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Pansy Maurer-Alvarez will launch her latest poetry collection, IN A FORM OF SUSPENSION (corrupt press).

The program will include some French translations by Anne Talvaz and improvisations by dancer Romual Kaboré.

Pansy Maurer-Alvarez was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and emigrated to Switzerland in 1973. She began writing poetry as a teenager and completed 11 years of literary studies at universities in the US, Spain and Switzerland, where she worked for a short time as a teacher and translator. Upon moving to Pairs in 1991, she abandoned plans for furthering her academic career in order to devote herself to poetry full time. Her poems have appeared throughout Europe and the US in such diverse publications as the TLS, Hanging Loose Magazine, LUNGFULL!, La Traductière, Rattapallax and Osiris. She has work in several anthologies, including Ladies, Start You Engines (Faber and Faber), Final de Entrega (Colectivo Ediciones) and Visiting Dr. Williams (University of Iowa Press). Some of her poems have been translated into French, German and Spanish and she is the author of 4 previous collections. She is a contributing editor for Tears in the Fence and curates the Poets Live reading series in Paris.
