Poetry Reading: Keith Althaus

March 11, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

We are pleased to present local poet Keith Althaus to read from his new book of poetry, Cold Storage. Keith Althaus is the author of two other poetry collections, Rival Heavens (Provincetown Arts Press,1993) and Ladder of Hours (Ausable Press, 2005). Althaus is the recipient of a Pushcart Prize, an inaugural Provincetown Arts Fellowship (1969), a Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, and a Mass Foundation for the Arts Grant. His poetry has appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry Magazine, Orion, American Poetry Review, Harvard Review, Virginia Quarterly Review, AGNI, and elsewhere. He lives on Cape Cod with his wife, the artist Susan Baker.
“Keith Althaus has been writing some of the most hauntingly beautiful poems I’ve ever read for
as long as I can remember. Somehow (maybe even more so now) he stands in sardonic wonder at all
he encounters, both in and out of his mind. I too stand in wonder at the gifts he fashions from all this
unknown.” —NICK FLYNN, author of Another Bullshit Night in Suck City
“Sometimes in the daylight world (‘We make our own light, / as much as we can stand…’), sometimes
just before sleep at night (‘something moving / just below the surface’), these poems are talking for us
with their beloved Rilke. This is a plain-spoken, original, mysterious, and loving book to turn
back and back to.” —JEAN VALENTINE, author of Shirt in Heaven
