The Harriet Reading Series features readings, presentations, and talks by poets who have appeared on Harriet, the Poetry Foundation’s blog. The series presents both established and emerging poets whose writing finds innovative approaches to the craft of poetry.
New York-based writer Corina Copp is the author of Miracle Mare and Pro Magenta/Be Met. Recent work can be found in Triple Canopy's Corrected Slogans: Reading and Writing Conceptualism, Boston Review, The Claudius App, SFMOMA’s Open Space, and elsewhere. SUSANSWERPHONE, the first installment of her three-part play The Whole Tragedy of the Inability to Love, was presented at the PreludeNYC 2012 Festival.
Joel Craig is the author of The White House and the chapbook Shine Tomorrow. He co-founded and curates The Danny’s Reading Series, edits poetry for MAKE: A Literary Magazine, and contributes to the multimedia group Pulseprogramming. He lives in Chicago.
This exhibition presents photographs and ephemera from the poet Jun Fujita (1888-1963). Fujita is an English-language tanka poet who published regularly in Poetry during the 1920s. The first Japanese-American photojournalist, he is responsible for the most famous photos of the Eastland disaster, the Chicago race riots of 1919, and the St. Valentine’s Day massacre, among others. This show will explore his lesser-known landscapes.
