This is an in-person event

Joshua Edwards and Lynn Xu, two poets with recent books out, and with a jointly translated new book of poetry also out, read here this evening from the next books. Joshua Edwards, also an editor in addition to being a poet and translator, has three earlier books of poems out, and now The Double Lamp of Solitude (Rising Tide Projects / Canarium Books). This newest book, which includes photographs, ruminates on the death-sites, and lives and work of the poets Friedrich Hölderlin, Federico Garcia Lorca, and Miguel Hernández.

Lynn Xu follows her earlier full-length collection, Debts & Lessons, with a striking new volume out from Seattle’s Wave Books, And Those Ashen Heaps That Cantilevered Vase of Moonlight. Her book-length poem takes on a lot: ‘reality,  metaphysical reckoning, ant internationale for the world-historical surrealist insurgency, and arte povera for the wretched of the earth, Joshua Edwards and Lynn Xu together have translated contemporary Chinese poet Lao Yang’s Pee Poems (Circumference Books).
