Join us for an afternoon of poetry with the Powow River Poets! Readings are free, accessible, and open to the public. The poets reading this month are John Foy and Joan A. W. Kimball. Come early to sign up for open mic!
John Foy’s most recent book, Night Vision, was selected by Adam Kirsch as winner of the New Criterion Poetry Prize and was published in 2016 by St. Augustine’s Press. It was also a finalist for the 2018 Poets’ Prize. His first book is Techne’s Clearinghouse. His poems have been included in the Swallow Anthology of New American Poets, The Raintown Review Anthology, and Rabbit Ears, an anthology of poems about TV, and they have appeared widely in journals and online. He lives and works in New York.
Joan A. W. Kimball of Concord, MA, a member of the Powow River Poets, runs poetry workshops in both Wayland and Concord. She has published two poetry chapbooks, co-edited a third, and has a new manuscript making the rounds. Besides appearing in numerous journals, she performed for five years as a member of the comic poetry troupe, X. J. Kennedy and the Light Brigade on stage, on TV, and at four Massachusetts Poetry Festivals.
