National Poetry Month Reading with Eleni Sikelianos and Bin Ramke

Colfax Avenue: Eleni Sikelianos, who teaches in and directs the Creative Writing Program at the University of Denver, is the author of six books of poetry, most recently Body Clock and The California Poem. Sikelianos will read from and sign her new book of contemporary poetry The Loving Detail of the Living and the Dead ($15.95 Coffee House Press).

"Sikelianos, the great-granddaughter of a renowned Greek poet, continues her own explorations of the epic with this dazzling new macro-collage. The resulting lucid cacophony is close to what she described in her earlier work The Book of Jon, ‘enough pipe-dreams to fill up several countries, countries full of pipe-dreamers.’ Hers is a voice, or voices, unlike anything in contemporary poetry.”—John Ashbery

Award-winning poet Bin Ramke edits the Denver Quarterly and teaches literature and creative writing at the University of Denver. Ramke will read from and sign his most recent book of poetry Aerial ($17.95 Omnidawn Press).

"For decades, Bin Ramke has been America's most intelligent poet...his devotion to language itself, not as a medium but as a species, avows that poems may be more than we shall ever live to say. With Aerial, Bin Ramke invents a wholly new kind of hope." —Donald Revell
