Poetry at Bennington—Spring 2022
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | Poetry reading by Ukrainian-born poet and translator and author of the acclaimed collections Dancing in Odessa and Deaf Republic. Reading will be followed by a public Q&A.
Ilya Kaminsky is the author of the poetry collections Deaf Republic (Graywolf, 2019), a National Book Award finalist, and Dancing in Odessa (Tupelo, 2004). Born in the Soviet city of Odessa (now in Ukraine), he lost most of his hearing at the age of four after a doctor misdiagnosed mumps as a cold. The editor of several anthologies, including The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry, A God in the House: Poets Talk About Faith, and Gossip and Metaphysics: Russian Modernist Poets and Prose, Kaminsky is the Bourne Chair in Poetry at Georgia Tech and lives in Atlanta.
Please note that this event is no longer in person and will be available virtually only.
