The Georgia Review Issue Release Celebration and Reading
To celebrate the release of its new reversible, flippable Fall/Winter 2018 double issue, The Georgia Reviewwill host a reading by authors Camille T. Dungy and Bob Hicok. A reception with light refreshments will follow the reading.
Dungy is the author of the essay collection Guidebook to Relative Strangers: Journeys into Race, Motherhood, and History(W. W. Norton, 2017), which was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, and four collections of poetry, most recently Trophic Cascade (Wesleyan University Press, 2017), winner of the Colorado Book Award. She has also edited several anthologies, including Black Nature: Four Centuries of African American Nature Poetry (University of Georgia Press, 2009). Her honors include NEA Fellowships in both poetry (2003) and prose (2018), an American Book Award, and two NAACP Image Award nominations. She is a professor at Colorado State University. Her essay “Is All Writing Environmental Writing?” appears in the Fall issue of The Georgia Review.
Hicokis the author of several poetry collections, most recently Words for Empty, Words for Full (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2010); Elegy Owed (Copper Canyon Press,2013), a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award; Sex & Love (Copper Canyon Press,2016); and his latest collection, Hold (Copper Canyon Press, 2018). He is currently teaching at Virginia Tech. The Winter 2018 issue of The Georgia Reviewfeatures two new poems by Hicok, “Saving a life” and “I keep a weather station in my head.”
The Georgia Review’s Fall issue offers a look at the changing nature of environmental writing in the age of the Anthropocene. The Winter issue showcases new works of fiction in a feature titled “Here, There, Then, Now: Stories from Six Worlds.” Both are bound together in a handsome and uniquely designed double issue, which includes new work from nearly 50 writers as well as two full art portfolios and which will be for sale at a promotional rate at the event. Books by Dungy and Hicok will also be available.
This event is funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. ASL interpretation will be provided.
