LBB Presents ONLINE: Ted Mathys & Aditi Machado
Left Bank Books welcomes award-winning poets Ted Mathys and Aditi Machado, who will discuss their new books of poetry, “Gold Cure” (Mathys) and “Emporium” (Machado), on Facebook Live at 7pm CDT on October 7. Join us on our Facebook Live Page and order copies of “Gold Cure” and “Emporium,” from Left Bank Books. Lustrous, tender, and expansive, “Gold Cure” moves from boomtown gold mines and the mythical city of El Dorado to the fracking wells of the American interior, excavating buried histories, legacies of conquest, and the pursuit of shimmering ideals. In “Emporium,” Aditi Machado investigates transnationalism and translation in poems that follow a merchant woman as she travels a twenty-first century “silk route.” Ted Mathys is the author of “Gold Cure,” “Null Set” (2015), “The Spoils” (2009) and “Forge” (2005). He teaches at St. Louis University. Aditi Machado is a poet, translator, and essayist. Her books include the poetry collections “Emporium,” and “Some Beheadings.”
