Observable Readings – Jay Hopler and Dana Levin, October 1

The Observable Reading Series on October 1 will feature Jay Hopler and Dana Levin. Brought to you by St. Louis Poetry Center, the Observable Series welcomes poets to Dressel’s Public House (CWE). Reading begins at 7:30 p.m. in the upstairs loft of the restaurant.

JAY HOPLER’s first book, Green Squall, was chosen for the Yale Younger Poets Series prize by Louise Gluck, who praised Hopler’s audacity, his “insouciance and bravura,” his witness as “a poet of being.”

DANA LEVIN’s new book of poetry is Banana Palace (Copper Canyon Press, 2016). Her first book, In the Surgical Theatre, was chosen by Louise Glück for the 1999 American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize and went on to receive numerous honors, including the 2003 PEN/Osterweil Award. Copper Canyon Press brought out her second book, Wedding Day, in 2005, and in 2011 Sky Burial, which The New Yorker called “utterly her own and utterly riveting.”

Free, $5 donation suggested at door.
