Please join us for the next reading of Triangle Quarterly--a series dedicated to exploring diverse styles and genres of poetry, curated and hosted by Anton Yakovlev.

Each reading features 3 poets writing in distinctly different modes. After the readings the 3 poets assemble onstage for a Q&A and a discussion where they react to each other's work!

The readers for the evening are: Annie Bien, Daniel Brown, and Joel Allegretti

About the readers:

Annie Bien is the author of two books of poetry—Under Shadows of Stars (Kelsay Books, 2017) and Plateau Migration (Alabaster Leaves Press, 2012) and translates Tibetan Buddhist texts into English. She received her first writing grant with a seed commission from the Soho Theatre Company in London. She has published poetry and prose in a variety of journals, garnering a Pushcart Prize nomination, third place in the Biscuit poetry competition, and a finalist nod for the Strokestown International Poetry Prize. Her translation work is supported by the global nonprofit initiative 84000: Translating the Words of the Buddha. She is also a Pilates teacher and lives in Brooklyn.

Daniel Brown’s poems have appeared in Poetry, Partisan Review, PN Review, Parnassus, Raritan and other journals, as well as in a number of anthologies including The Swallow Anthology of New American Poetry (edited by David Yezzi), and Poetry 180 (edited by Billy Collins). His work has received a Pushcart prize, and his collection Taking the Occasion won the New Criterion Poetry Prize. A new collection, What More?, is out from Orchises Press. Brown’s criticism has appeared in The Harvard Book Review, Parnassus, PN Review, and other journals . His audio-visual essay, Bach, Beethoven, Bartok: Confluence in Music is available from eBook retailers.

His second book of poems, Father Silicon (The Poet’s Press, 2006), was selected by The Kansas City Star as one of 100 Noteworthy Books of 2006. He is the editor of Rabbit Ears: TV Poems (NYQ Books, 2015), the first anthology of poetry about the mass medium. The Boston Globe called Rabbit Ears "cleverly edited" and "a smart exploration of the many, many meanings of TV." Rain Taxi said, "With its diversity of content and poetic form, Rabbit Ears feels more rich and eclectic than any other poetry anthology on the market."
