Please join us for the second 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.

This installment features the poets Dorothea Lasky, Stu Watson, and Bridget Sprouls.
