Join us for a reading by three accomplished poets. Weiner, University of Maryland professor, has published three collections and is noted for his explorations of landscape that also map the psyche’s inner space. Dabrowski, a rising star of the Polish literary scene, was recognized in 2006 by the Polish Culture Foundation and esteemed senior poet Tadeuscz Rozewicz; Black Square is his first book to appear in English. Fried, an award-winning poet, asks in her third book just what we mean by and expect of women’s poetry. Her answers confound any lingering images of “the poetess.”
