Please join us for the inaugural reading of Triangle Quarterly, a new 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.

This installment features the poets Paul Legault, Noel Quiñones, and Natalya Sukhonos.

Paul Legault is the author of four collections of poetry: The Madeleine Poems (Omnidawn, 2010), The Other Poems (Fence, 2011), The Emily Dickinson Reader (McSweeney's, 2012), and Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror 2 (Fence, 2016). With Sharmila Cohen, he is also the co-founder of Telephone Books and co-editor of The Sonnets: Translating and Rewriting Shakespeare (Nightboat, 2012).

Noel Quiñones is an AfroBoricua writer, performer, and educator raised in the Bronx. A CantoMundo, Brooklyn Poets, and Emerging Poets Fellow at Poets House, he is currently a member of the 2016 Bowery Poetry Slam team. He has performed at historic locations such as Lincoln Center, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, and Apples and Snakes - London. His work has appeared in The Acentos Review, Pilgrimage Press, Kweli Journal, and Asymptote's Multilingual Writing Feature.

Natalya Sukhonos was born in Odessa, Ukraine and immigrated to New York City at the age of 9. Natalya has a PhD in Comparative Literature from Harvard University and is teaching a class on Tolstoy's "War and Peace" at the Stanford Continuing Studies Program. Her poems are published by Middle Gray Magazine, the Really System, the Emerge Literary Journal, cahoodalodaling, the Yellow Medicine Review, Empty Sink Publishing, and Dr. Hurley’s Snake-Oil Cure.
