Periodically Speaking with Katy Lederer
Poetry and Thought with Fence Magazine
I'm really excited about the program for Periodically Speaking: Focus on Poetry tonight. The featured journal is Fence magazine and poetry editor Katy Lederer will be joined by poets Rodrigo Toscano, Gary Heidt, Ken Chen and Sarah Gambito for an in depth discussion of content, as distinct from form, in contemporary poetry. The program begins with brief readings by the poets followed by conversation.
Also looking forward to meeting Katy Lederer. I'm a big fan of the literary zine Explosive - the publication she edited for ten years. Each is a beautifully produced, stapled zine with original covers (Issue 6 here is my favorite) and poetry from across the country. I remember searching high and low for copies of it several years ago to add to the periodicals collection. I eventually exchanged emails with Katy and she sent me the issues she had remaining - check them out. Join us tonight for a stimulating conversation in one of the most beautiful public spaces in the city!
