Please join us for our upcoming Chin Music reading featuring three fine poets: Kathleen Graber, Colin Cheney, and Anthony Carelli. Series curated by Bryan Patrick Miller.
Located on Fourth Avenue in downtown Brooklyn, near the Atlantic/Pacific subway hub, Pacific Standard is a literary bar serving up eighteen microbrews on tap and cask (including both West Coast and local breweries), fine wines and liquors, and tasty snacks like chips and salsa, and meat and cheese plates.
Kathleen Graber's second collection, The Eternal City, is a finalist for the 2010 National Book Award. She is an assistant professor of English in the Creative Writing Program at Virginia Commonwealth University. She has recently been a Hodder Fellow in Poetry at Princeton University and an Amy Lowell Travelling Scholar. She is the recipient of fellowships from The New Jersey State Council on the Arts and The Rona Jaffe Foundation. Her poems have appeared recently in AGNI, The Kenyon Review, and The New Yorker.
Colin Cheney’s debut collection of poems, Here Be Monsters (University of Georgia, 2010), was selected for the National Poetry Series. His poems have appeared in American Poetry Review, Poetry, Ploughshares, Kenyon Review, Notre Dame Review, Crazyhorse, and Gulf Coast. In 2006, he received a Ruth Lilly Fellowship from the Poetry Foundation, and his poem, “Lord God Bird,” received a 2010 Pushcart Prize. He lives in Bangkok, Thailand.
Anthony Carelli was born and raised in Poynette, Wisconsin—a no-stoplight village that smells periodically of sauerkraut. He attended University of Wisconsin-Madison and New York University. Currently Anthony works at a savory pie shop in Brooklyn, NY. He has had poems published in a few magazines including Columbia, AGNI, and The New Yorker. His first book, Carnations, will be published by Princeton University Press in spring of 2011.
