A Poetry Reading with Jared Stanley and Michael Ives
Campus Center, Weis Cinema
6:00 pm
Jared Stanley is a poet, writer, teacher, and interdisciplinary artist. He has published three collections of poetry: Ears (Nightboat 2017), The Weeds (Salt 2012), and Book Made of Forest, which won Salt Publishing's Crashaw Prize in 2008. Stanley's poems "urge us," Tim Z. Hernandez writes, "to reconsider our man-made constructs of flora/fauna/naturaleza, which is to say, barriers and infinities." His art work is interested in how states talk to themselves through bureaucratic decoration: awarding medals, notarizing documents, and explaining landscapes. Recent essays and poems have appeared in Triple Canopy, Literary Hub, The Academy of American Poets, and the Columbia Review. Stanley was born in Arizona, grew up in California, and now lives in Nevada, where he teaches at Sierra Nevada College.

Michael Ives is a writer, musician, and sound/text performer living in the Hudson Valley. His poetry and fiction have appeared in numerous magazines and journals in the United States and abroad. He is the author of Wavetable (Dr. Cicero Books, 2015) and The External Combustion Engine (Futurepoem, 2005) and has taught in the Written Arts Program at Bard College since 2003.
