Poetry Reading: Kim Addonizio, Javier Zamora and Joseph Legaspi

Thursday, September 12, 2019 - 6:00pm

The Center for Creative Photography and the Poetry Center at the University of Arizona are delighted to exhibit a captivating project by photographer and author B.A. Van Sise in a celebration of the bicentennial of Walt Whitman's birth that showcases portraits of poets.

We are proud to present Kim Addonizio, Joseph O. Legaspi, and Javier Zamora, who will read from their work at the Center for Creative Photography. After the reading, there will be a short Q&A and a book signing.

Kim Addonizio has published 12 books of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Her most recent are "Bukowski in a Sundress: Confessions from a Writing Life," from Penguin, and Mortal Trash: Poems from W.W. Norton. She teaches poetry workshops online and in her home in Oakland, California.

Joseph O. Legaspi is the author of the poetry collections "Threshold" and "Imago," both from CavanKerry Press; and three chapbooks: "Postcards," "Aviary, Bestiary," and "Subways." He cofounded Kundiman, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to nurturing generations of writers and readers of Asian American literature.

Javier Zamora is a Radcliffe Fellow at Harvard University and holds fellowships from CantoMundo, MacDowell, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Poetry Foundation, and Stanford University. "Unaccompanied" is his first collection.
