Poetry Reading: Amanda Nadelberg & Robyn Schiff
Poetry at Bennington—Spring 2017
Amanda Nadelberg is the author of three poetry collections: Songs from a Mountain (Coffee House, 2016), Bright Brave Phenomena (Coffee House, 2012), and Isa the Truck Named Isadore (Slope Editions, 2006). Publishers Weekly says of her work, “Through the de- and recontextualization of what was first familiar and is now strange, Nadelberg establishes herself as an exemplar of early 21st-century artistic practice.” She works as an editor in the San Francisco Bay Area and was a 2016 Columnist-in-Residence at SFMoMA.
Robyn Schiff is the author of the poetry collections A Woman of Property (Penguin, 2016), Revolver (Iowa, 2008), a finalist for the PEN Award, and Worth (Iowa, 2002). Her poems have appeared in Poetry, The New Yorker, The New Republic, A Public Space, and Boston Review. Formerly a visiting professor at the University of Oregon and Northwestern University, she is an Associate Professor in the English Department at the University of Iowa and co-editor of Canarium Books.
