PRIZE POETS READING PROGRAM AT THE HOUSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY
Winners of the Prestigious Yale Prize for Younger Poets to be Featured
January 12, 2013 at 2 PM

The Houston Public Library in partnership with Public Poetry presents the First Annual Prize Poets program which will showcase nationally acclaimed poets. For the inaugural event, two winners of the prestigious Yale Prize for Younger Poets will be featured, Fady Joudah and Katherine Larson. Both poets were selected for this award by Louise Glück, who served as the 2003-2004 US Poet Laureate and is the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, among other notable awards. This event will take place Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 2 PM at the Central Library, 4th floor, 500 McKinney, 77002, 832-393-1313. The program is free and open to the public.

The Yale Prize for Younger Poets has been awarded since 1919, and is the oldest literary award in the United States. Past winners of this prize include such notable poets as Mriel Rukeyser, Adrienne Rich, William Merdith, W.S. Merwin, John Ashbery, John Hollander, James Tate, and Carolyn Forche.

About Poet Fady Joudah
Joudah is a Palestinian American that won The Yale Series of Younder Poets Prize in 2007 for "The Earth in the Attic,” selected by Louise Glück. In 2013, Copper Canyon Press will publish his second book, “Alright.” His translations of Mahmoud Darwish’s poetry, “The Butterfly’s Burden” and “If I Were Another,” received the 2008 TLS/Banipal Prize for Arabic translation from the UK, and the PEN USA for translation in 2010. His recent translation is that of Ghassan Zaqtan’s poetry, “Like a Straw Bird It Follows Me.”

Joudah is also a practicing physician of internal medicine and has worked with Doctors Without Borders. For Joudah, “…the realm of modern language…is highly infused with the scientific.” He adds: “If it is cliché or outdated to say “poetry comes to one, one does not come to poetry,” then I think neuroscience might soon prove this cliché to be true, so long as poetry is words in visible and invisible rhythms. Or I can say my father spoke a lot to me about poetry and grammar when I was a kid.”

About Poet Katherine Larson
Larson won The Yale Series of Younger Poets Prize in 2011 for “Radical Symmetry,” selected by Louise Glück. Her poetry has been highlighted on PBS’s Newshour Poetry Series. Larson’s poems have also appeared in Prentice Hall’s anthology “Literature: An Introduction to Reading and Writing,” and journals including “AGNI,” “Boulevard,” the “Kenyon Review,” the “Massachusetts Review,” “Orion,” “Poetry,” “Poetry Northwest,” and others. She is also the recipient of a Kate Tufts Discovery Award, the Levis Reading Prize, a Ruth Lilly Fellowship, and The Union League Civic and Arts Foundation Poetry Prize.

Larson has worked for the last decade as a molecular biologist and field ecologist. She lives in Arizona with her husband and daughter. “Science and poetry are fueled by curiosity, and both depend on investigation and experimentation. But they also depend on imagination,” say Larson. “While living at a field station next to the Sea of Cortez…I’d write at night in the wet lab when the station was deserted, baby hammerheads and pygmy octopuses staring out from specimen jars, the sea outside sonorous and insistent.”

About Public Poetry
Public Poetry is an innovative monthly reading series that brings the public and poetry community together, creating a buzz about poetry. Public Poetry events feature outstanding local and visiting poets, plus a public figure or local guest celebrity and a short student reading, with a meet-the-poets book signing at the end of each program. The year-round reading series is a partnership between Public Poetry and Houston Public Library. Please join us for these free programs, held on the first Saturday of each month at 2 PM. For more information, please visit www.publicpoetry.net.
