Mark Levine, Ada Limon, and Elena Rivera

In Travels of Marco, Mark Levine’s new book of poems, there is “a captivating lyric invention of nimble leaps and twists of wit,” wrote D. A. Powell. In Bright Dead Things, named one of The New York Times’ Top Ten Books of Poetry in 2015, “Ada Limón picks things up, puts them down, daydreams, sings and casually, unpretentiously finds everything strange, uttering truths that have a light, mysterious accuracy,” wrote Matthew Zapruder. Eléna Rivera’s new collection, Scaffolding, is a “vibrant, exploratory addition to the venerable and diverse New York tradition of ‘city sonnets,’” wrote Michael Palmer. “The poems’ play of pattern and randomness generates an electric dialogue between self and world.”

The poets will be introduced by Geoffrey Nutter, Kristin Dombek and Thom Donovan.
