The Woodberry Poetry Room's schedule of events for Fall is out, and I'm delighted to be presenting on "Experiments at the Borders of Poetry and Translation" with Mary Jo Bang on Wednesday, October 17: OMNIGLOT SEMINAR: EXPERIMENTS AT THE BORDERS OF POETRY & TRANSLATION

Mary Jo Bang (author of Elegy and the recent variations on Dante's Inferno) and Jennifer Scappettone (translator of the award-winning Locomotrix: Selected Poetry and Prose of Amelia Rosselli and author of From Dame Quickly) explore the ways that their translation projects intersect with and enlarge their own poetics. The event will include readings and interactive discussions with the audience.

Woodberry Poetry Room, Lamont Library, Harvard University, Room 330. Free and open to the public.
