Genesee Reading Series: Tony Leuzzi and Lytton Smith
June 11, 2019 @ EST 7:30 pm$6.00
Tony Leuzzi and Lytton Smith The Genesee Reading Series is a smorgasbord for your literary palate. Come every month on the second Tuesday, and by the end of the year you will have feasted on the work of 24 regional authors (some prominent, some emerging; writers of fiction, poetry, essay, creative nonfiction, memoir). It’s up close and personal in the intimate performance space upstairs— stay afterward and talk to the authors while eating cookies.
Lytton Smith is Associate Professor of Creative Writing and Director of the Center for Integrative Learning at SUNY Geneseo. A 2019 NEA Literature Translation Fellow, he has translated books from the Icelandic, including most recently Sigrún Pálsdóttir’s debut novel, History. A Mess. He is the author of the poetry collections The All-Purpose Magical Tent (Nightboat, 2009) and While You Were Approaching the Spectacle But Before You Were Transformed by It (Nightboat, 2013) as well as the chapbooks My Radar Data Knows Its Thing (Foundlings, 2018) and Monster Theory (Poetry Society of America, 2008).
TONY LEUZZI’s books include the poetry collections Radiant Losses, The Burning Door, and Meditation Archipelago, as well as Passwords Primeval, a collection of his interviews with twenty American poets. He is a staff writer for the “Books” section of The Brooklyn Rail.
