Sarah Lindsay, Reading, 19 May 2013 – Video

Recorded at the Lannan Foundation in Santa Fe, New Mexico on May 19, 2013.

Poet Sarah Lindsay read from her work after an introduction by poet Arthur Sze, and then took questions from the audience.

Born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in 1958, the poet Sarah Lindsay works as a copy editor and proofreader in Greensboro, North Carolina. She is the author of Primate Behavior (Grove Press Poetry Series, 1997) which was a finalist for the National Book Award; Mount Clutter (Grove Press Poetry Series, 2002); and Twigs and Knucklebones (Copper Canyon Press, 2008). A graduate of St. Olaf College and the UNC-Greensboro MFA program in creative writing, she apprenticed for a few years at Unicorn Press, learning to set type, print and bind books by hand. She plays the cello with friends in a quartet that is sometimes a trio or quintet, and lives with her husband and small dog among toppling piles of books. In 2009, Sarah received the M. Howard and Barbara M.J. Wood prize from the Poetry Foundation and a Lannan Literary Fellowship. Her new collection, Debt to the Bone-Eating Snotflower, is due from Copper Canyon Press later this year.

Peter Reading, Civil, Reading, 2002 – Video

Recorded at the home of Peter Reading in October, 2010.

Peter Reading is one of Britain’s most original and controversial poets: angry, uncompromising, gruesomely ironic, hilarious, and heartbreaking. In Spring 2001, the Lannan Foundation traveled to England and recorded Peter Reading reading his entire body of poetry to that time, i.e. through the collection Faunal. In 2010 the Lannan Foundation commissioned British videographer Pamela Robertson-Pearce to record Mr. Reading reading from his subsequent collections at his home in Ludlow, Shropshire, England. The Lannan Foundation is delighted to bring the voice and work of Peter Reading to a world-wide audience.

Civil, now out of print, is included in Collected Poems Volume III: Poems 1997-2003 (2003, Bloodaxe).
