Description

Join the MIT Press Bookstore in welcoming poets Suzanne Zelazo, Adam Dickinson, and John Canaday to the store on Saturday, April 28, at 4:00 pm.

About Suzanne Zelazo:

Suzanne Zelazo is a writer, editor, educator and former professional triathlete. She holds a PhD in English with a specialty in female modernism and avant garde poetry and performance. Her scholarly publications include co-edited collections of writing by Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven (MIT Press) and Florine Stettheimer (BookThug). Her projects seek to integrate creative expression and the body. Her latest book, Lances All Alike, explores lines of influence, appropriation, and female artistic collaboration, showcasing women’s voices on the fringe that are worthy of taking center stage.

About Adam Dickinson:

Adam Dickinson’s poetry has appeared in literary journals and anthologies in Canada and internationally. His latest book, Anatomic (Coach House Books), involved chemical and microbial testing on his body. His work has been nominated for the Governor General’s Award for Poetry, the Trillium Book Award for Poetry, and the ReLit Award. He was also a finalist for the CBC Poetry Prize and the K.M. Hunter Artist Award in Literature. He teaches poetics and creative writing at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.

About John Canaday:

John Canaday’s most recent book, Critical Assembly, is a collection of poems in the voices of the men and women—scientists, spouses, laborers, locals, and military personnel—involved in the Manhattan Project. His previous book of poems, The Invisible World, set in the Middle East and New England, won the Walt Whitman Award from the Academy of American Poets. He is also the author of a nonfiction study, The Nuclear Muse: Literature, Physics, and the First Atomic Bombs. He teaches literature, writing, physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, and history in the Boston area.
