Chin Music poetry

Chin Music poetry takes place Thursday with Joseph Legaspi, Aaron Balkan, and Steven Karl. But you should also join us in two weeks, on March 4 at 7 pm, for a reading featuring three fine poets: John Burnside, Ada Limón, and Lindsay Turner.

Renowned Scottish poet John Burnside is the author of twelve collections of poetry, including his SELECTED POEMS and THE HUNT IN THE FOREST, both released in 2009, and seven works of fiction. Burnside has achieved wide critical acclaim, winning the Whitbread Poetry Award in 2000 for THE ASYLUM DANCE, which was also shortlisted for the Forward and T. S. Eliot prizes. Ada Limón is the author of two award-winning books of poetry, LUCKY WRECK and THIS BIG FAKE WORLD; her third collection, SHARKS IN THE RIVER, is forthcoming from Milkweed Editions. Lindsay Turner's poems and criticism have appeared or are forthcoming in Meridian, VERSE online, The Boston Review, Drunken Boat, and elsewhere.
