This evening honors John Yau, the author of thirteen books of poetry, most recently Bijoux in the Dark (2018); four books of fiction; and many monographs and books of art criticism. An influence and mentor to many poets, Yau wields visual art, film, and surrealism in his poems, speaking through “voices that reveal the multiple and shadowy selves inside the self” (2018 Jackson Poetry Prize citation). This evening is hosted by Vincent Katz and features readings by Anselm Berrigan, Sergio Bessa, Joseph Donahue, Albert Mobilio, Laura Mullen, Catherine Murphy, Tammy Nguyen, Barry Schwabsky, Genya Turovskaya, Stanley Whitney, Monica Youn, and John Yau himself.

Admission Free and open to the public
