The Poetry Center and The Green Arcade present a tribute to Franco Beltrametti (1937-1995), incorporating a screening of Claudio Tettamanti's short film "Ultime cose (d’après CHOSES qui voyagent)” (1995). Stefan Hyner, Duncan McNaughton, Joanne Kyger, Donald Guravich, Judy Goldhaft, Maggie Brown, and Jim Nesbit read from Beltrametti's Almost Everywhere: Selected Poems 1965-1995 (Fondazione Franco Beltrametti/Blackberry Books, 2016), and from Beltrametti's 1971 novel Nadamas, and comment on the late poet-artist and his work.
The Poetry Center presents Stefan Hyner in a reading and talk entitled "This Other World Not Civilized." Hyner reads in reverse-chronology from his own poetry dated 2003–2015, all in manuscript. He also reads his translations from Classical Chinese poets Lao Tzu, T'ao Yuan-Ming and Li T'ai Po, and responds to questions and remarks from the audience.
