Poetry & Science

Two of my favorite things, poetry and science, are coming together in the Poetry Northwest Science Issue & Spring Symposium. I wish I could be in Seattle for this event on May 9th and 10th; those of you who are, don't miss it! Featuring readings by Katherine Larson (who recently won the Yale Younger Poets Prize for her book Radial Symmetry--if you don't know her work, check her out reading here on the PBS Newshour and interviewed here by PBS) and Richard Kenney, a perennial fav of mine, and the intriguingly titled panel, "Model Realities: Science in Poetry & Poetry in Science,"it's going to be a great event.

I'll just have to comfort myself with the print issue though. Sigh.

I'm really intrigued by Larson's book, but haven't any time to read anything but study materials (and your blog!) these days. Another one for the to-read list...

Me too, Mari. Haven't read it yet but it's at the top of my list.
