Join us for the fifth night of our new monthly Sunday evening reading series of utterly fantastic poets & writers at Bowery Poetry. First Sundays from 8:30 PM - 10:30 PM.

This month will feature poets Peter Gizzi and Joseph Massey!

PETER GIZZI is the author of several collections of poetry, including Threshold Songs (2011), The Outernationale (2007), and Artificial Heart (1998). Influenced by Ezra Pound, the Beats, and John Ashbery, Gizzi uses both narrative and lyrical gestures to engage and question distance and light in his search for the unmapped.

JOSEPH MASSEY is the author of Areas of Fog (Shearsman Books, 2009), At the Point (Shearsman Books, 2011), and To Keep Time (Omnidawn, 2014), as well as a dozen chapbooks. He lives in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts.
