Mark Wunderlich and Friends
Poets Mark Wunderlich, Pimone Triplett, Andrew Feld, and Katharine Whitcomb will gather for a reading. Wunderlich will read from his brand-new collection, The Earth Avails (Graywolf Press 2014).
“Mark Wunderlich’s book seems to be arguing that the best way to know who we are is not by excavating the immediate world around us, but the world we’re losing and have nearly lost.”
Mark Wunderlich’s first book, The Anchorage, was published in 1999 by the University of Massachusetts Press, and received the Lambda Literary Award. His second book, Voluntary Servitude, was published by Graywolf Press in 2004. A third volume of poems titled The Earth Avails, is forthcoming from Graywolf in 2014. He has published individual poems in The Paris Review, Yale Review, Slate, Tin House, Poetry, Ploughshares, Boston Review and elsewhere.
