An Afternoon with Fani Papageorgiou
 
WHEN: September 13, 2015 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
READING
Join us for an afternoon with acclaimed poet Fani Papageorgiou, who will be reading from her latest collection, Not So Ill with You & Me. Fani will be joined on our stage by poets Taya Kitaysky and Kurt Heinzelman.

Fani Papageorgiou gives us a poetry in which ‘almost everything happens in language’ yet what is crucial is precisely what’s covered by that harsh little word ‘almost,’ and in which ‘empty space is affected by gravity’—the empty space is that of the human heart. This kaleidoscopic sequence of searing fragments marks the arrival of an outstanding poet. —Barry Schwabsky

Fani Papageorgiou studied History of Science at Harvard and Law at the University of Edinburgh. Her collection of poems, When You Said No, Did You Mean Never?, received the Hong Kong Poetry Prize and was translated into Spanish. Her second book, Not So Ill with You & Me, was published in the UK in May of this year. Her book reviews have appeared in the Economist, the Times Literary Supplement, and FT Weekend.
