Dia is pleased to announce the upcoming events in its Readings in Contemporary Poetry series. This season, instead of pairing two poets for an evening, curator Vincent Katz has chosen a format that pays tribute to five exemplary poets. For each event, a small group of readers will pay homage to one of the featured poets, followed by a reading by that poet. The featured poet for this event is John Godfrey. 

The tribute readers for this event will be Erica Hunt, Duncan McNaughton, Maureen Owen, and Anne Waldman.

John Godfrey was born in Massena, New York, in 1945. He began writing and publishing poems while at Princeton University in New Jersey. His recent publications include The City Keeps: Selected and New Poems 1966–2014 (2016), Tiny Gold Dress (2012), and City of Corners (2008). He has received fellowships and grants from the Foundation for Contemporary Art, Fund for Poetry, and General Electric Foundation.
