John Pluecker and Jen Hofer: September 26th, 2018
The Poetry Center presents poet-translator-activists John Pluecker and Jen Hofer, reading and in conversation, to debut the Poetry Center's Tripwire Cross-Cultural Poetics Series. John Pluecker reads from Ford Over (Noemi Press, 2016), poems from an unpublished manuscript, Green Go Home, and poems from an untitled unpublished work in progress. Jen Hofer reads from her translation of Virginia Lucas’s Amé.RICA (tu valor de cambio), as Ah.me.RICH.ah (your exchange value) (forthcoming, Litmus Press, 2019), followed by an unpublished manuscript of new works, titled conditions. The poets' interlaced performances are followed briefly by a conversation with the audience.
