Please join us on Sunday, November 17th at 3 p.m. at the DC Arts Center (2438 18th Street in Adams Morgan, just south of Columbia Rd. on the west side of the street) for a poetry reading featuring the work of CATHY EISENHOWER and KERRI SONNENBERG.
CATHY EISENHOWER was born in Youngstown, Ohio, in 1968 and grew up there. She has also lived in Santiago, Chile, where she encountered Diana Bellessi, whose poems she translates--they did a bilingual reading at Smith Poetry Center in 2001. In Chile she also met the playwright Pablo Alvarez, and she's working on translating his play "The Cathedral of Light." In 2001 Phylum Press published her chapbook "Language of the Dog-heads." Her poems have also appeared in lit mags like Phoebe, Indiana Review, Denver Quarterly. Incidentally, she also was ordained so she could perform Nancy Kuhl and Richard Deming's marriage ceremony, but then they didn't let her do it.
KERRI SONNENBERG is editor of Conundrum, an annual journal dedicated to poetry and cross-genre work. Her poems have recently appeared in New American Writing, Aufgabe, Chase Park, Bird Dog, canwehaveourballback, Moria and Word/ for Word. Earlier this year she completed an MFA in Poetry at Brown University. She now lives in Chicago where she teaches at Columbia College and collaborates with husband and composer Jeffrey Weeter on works for new media.
