CANCELED Join us Thursday, March 12th at 7pm for the launch of The Manhattan Review, Volume 19 #2. Featuring readings by Frank Beck, Kate Farrell, Philip Fried, D Nurkse, and Barry Wallenstein.
The Manhattan Review, a local magazine (Columbia neighborhood) with an international reach, was founded by Philip Fried in 1980. Since that time it has combined the work of American poets with that of poets from around the world. In 1984, for example, MR devoted an entire issue to the work of Polish poet Zbigniew Herbert, and in the early 1990s MR was one of the first American journals to publish the poetry of Bei Dao. For a number of years, we have regularly published British poets alongside American poets. For more about MR and an archive of past issues, go to our Web site: www.themanhattanreview.com
Frank Beck has contributed to The Manhattan Review for more than 30 years, as poet, critic, and translator. He is currently working on an annotated edition of Das Haus, by German novelist Lou Andreas-Salomé.
Kate Farrell is the author of 7 books. Two were coauthored by the poet Kenneth Koch, including Sleeping on the Wing: An Anthology of Modern Poetry with Essays on Reading and Writing, a volume widely used in high school and college classrooms. Farrell taught writing at Columbia University and the NY State Poets in the Schools Program, and she acted for many years with the New York Art Theater Institute. Her most recent book, Visiting Night at the Academy of Longing, (Lavender Ink, 2016) is a volume of poems.
