LA-Lit interviews Maggie Nelson
Sunday, March 11 at 3pm
At Betalevel (http://www.betalevel.com) (Directions Below) http://la-lit.com/2007/03/06/la-lit-interviews-maggie-nelson/
We’d like to invite you to a live radio recording, reading & conversation this coming Sunday March 11 at 3 p.m. at Betalevel in Chinatown. Maggie Nelson will be the featured writer on LA-lit, a radio show co-curated by Mathew Timmons & Stephanie Rioux. The show (& hence the recording) lasts a little over an hour and will be about 30 minutes of reading & about 30 minutes of questions & answers/further questions – alternating between the two modes in hopes of creating a space for dynamic conversation.
Maggie Nelson is the author of several books of poetry, including Jane: A Murder, (2005; finalist for the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for the Art of the Memoir), The Latest Winter (2003), and Shiner (2001), as well as the forthcoming collection Something Bright, Then Holes (2007). In 2007 she will also publish The Red Parts, a nonfiction book about her family and criminal justice (Free Press/Simon & Schuster), and a critical study about poetry and painting, Women, The New York School, And Other True Abstractions (U of Iowa P). She currently teaches at CalArts, and has taught literature and writing at the Graduate Writing Program of the New School, Pratt Institute of Art, and Wesleyan University.
LA-Lit interviews poets and writers in the Los Angeles area. Reflecting the shifting nature of Los Angeles as a place, this may mean writers that have lived in LA all their lives or writers who happen to be in LA for a few days. LA-Lit is a place for the literary culture of Los Angeles to develop and exhibit itself. Co-hosted and co-produced by Stephanie Rioux and Mathew Timmons, LA-Lit is sponsored by Superbunker (http://superbunker.com) and recorded at Betalevel (http://betalevel.com).
