Fourth Monday Poetry Reading Series

We are so very excited to present the first installment of our new Fourth Monday Poetry Reading Series with host Joseph Hutchison! January's featured poets will be Linda Hogan and Wayne Miller. We hope to return to in-store events for future Fourth Mondays, but in the meantime, this will be a virtual event.

Join the Zoom here:

About the Poets: Joseph Hutchison, Poet Laureate of Colorado (2014-2018), is the award-winning author of 16 poetry collections, including most recently The World As Is: New & Selected Poems, 1972-2015. Because of its scope and essential unity, his book on the history and prehistory of the Sand Creek Massacre, Marked Men, was not included in The World As Is. Born and raised in Denver, Joe directs the Arts & Culture and Professional Creative Writing programs for the University of Denver’s University College. He lives with his wife, yoga instructor Melody Madonna, in the mountains southwest of the city.

Linda Hogan (Chickasaw) is a widely praised poet, novelist, and essayist whose awards include the American Book Award, the Colorado Book Award, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Native Writers Circle of the Americas, and the 2016 Thoreau Prize from PEN America. Her lyrical poetry, in verse and prose, is at the heart of all her achievements. Her latest collection, A History of Kindness, tenderly excavates the ways that history informs the present. Exploring our world as it wavers between loss and survival, her poetry envisions a future alive with hope for our planet as a healthy and sustainable home for all beings, human and nonhuman alike.

Wayne Miller is the author of five poetry collections, most recently We the Jury (Milkweed, 2021) andPost- (2016), which won the Rilke Prize and the Colorado Book Award in Poetry. He has co-translated two books by the Albanian writer Moikom Zeqo—most recently Zodiac (Zephyr, 2015), which was shortlisted for the PEN Center USA Award in Translation—and he has co-edited three books, most recently Literary Publishing in the Twenty-First Century (Milkweed, 2016). A recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation, as well as a Fulbright Distinguished Scholarship to Northern Ireland, Wayne teaches as the University of Colorado Denver, where he edits Copper Nickel.
