Erin Belieu and Josh Bell at KGB


Poets Erin Belieu and Josh Bell will read tonight at the KGB Monday Night Poetry Series.

Belieu’s newest collection Slant Six is just out from Copper Canyon Press. Publishers Weekly calls Slant Six “a rollicking fun book to read,” as “Belieu’s lyric musicality and strong sense of satire create an energetic tension.” This is Belieu’s fourth collection. The others are Infanta (1995), One Above & One Below (2000) and Black Box (2006).  She teaches in the creative writing program at Florida State University.

Josh Bell is the author of No Planets Strike (2005), published by Bison Books, and he has a second collection forthcoming from Copper Canyon in 2016. Bell teaches at Harvard University where he is the Briggs-Copeland Lecturer on English.

KGB is located on East 4th Street at Second Avenue in the East Village. Doors open at 7pm, and the reading will begin at 7:30.
