Reading: Kalogeris and Pollard

For their last reading of the season, the Brookline Poetry Series is proud to present George Kalogeris and Norah Pollard in an exciting double feature. The usual open mike will conclude the afternoon.
George Kalogeris teaches English Literature and Classics in Translation at Suffolk University. He is the author of a book of paired poems in translation, DIALOGOS (Antilever, 2012), and of a book of poems based on the notebooks of Albert Camus, Camus: Carnets (Pressed Wafer, 2006).

Norah Pollard lives where the Housatonic River meets Long Island Sound. She visits the river every evening, drawing from it much of her inspiration as a writer. Having begun to compose poetry in her mid-forties, she has received the Academy of American Poets Prize from the University of Bridgeport, and for several years edited The Connecticut River Review. Pollard’s three earlier poetry collections, Leaning In, Report from the Banana Hospital, and Death & Rapture in the Animal Kingdom were published in 2003, 2005 and 2009. She has read widely from those books at venues such as the Sunken Garden Poetry Festival, Yale and Brown Universities, the Rhode Island School of Design, and Arts Café Mystic, receiving much acclaim for those readings as well as for Garrison Keillor’s renditions of her poems on The Writer’s Almanac. To keep herself extant, Norah has worked as a secretary in advertising, law, and software engineering firms as well as steel companies. In earlier days she was variously a folk-singer, seam-stitcher, nanny, teacher, solderer, and print shop calligrapher. But all that time, she has felt the tidal pull of the words that shape her.
