August 28, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Poetry: Four Local Poets
Keith Althaus, Mary Ann Larkin, Toby Olson, and Patric Pepper, will  treat us to a late-summer reading their work. The poets will draw from recent books, older books, and works in progress. Keith Althaus’ most recent book is Cold Storage. An inaugural Fine Arts Work Center fellow, he is the author of two previous poetry collections, Rival Heavens and Ladder of Hours, and the recipient of a Pushcart Prize, among other awards. His poetry has appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry Magazine, Orion, American Poetry Review, Harvard Review, Virginia Quarterly Review, AGNI, and elsewhere. Poet, writer, and teacher Mary Ann Larkin’s latest volume, On Gannon Street, explores a single neighborhood in America.  Her poems have appeared in a previous volume of poetry, in five chapbooks, in many anthologies, and in numerous magazines, including America in Poetry, Ireland in Poetry, and Loving. The award-winning writer Toby Olson has written three volumes of poetry, as well as twelve novels. He co-founded and taught at the Aspen Writers’ Workshop, and at Long Island University and The New School For Social Research, and, since 1975, Temple University. Patric Pepper’s recent book Everything Pure as Nothing, is a selection from his poems written about snow over a 35 year period.  Patric Pepper is the author of two other collections of poetry. From 2008 through 2013, Pepper was President of Washington Writers’ Publishing House, a cooperative poetry and fiction press that began publishing in 1975 and has published well over 100 books to date. His work has appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, including most recently Beltway Poetry Quarterly, The Broadkill Review, Cape Cod Poetry Review, Confrontations, District Lines, Fugue, Gargoyle, and The Innisfree Poetry Journal.
