Poets House Presenters Make National Book Awards Longlist

This year, three Poets House presenters are among the ten poets whose books have been longlisted for the 2018 National Book Awards! They are Raquel Salas Rivera, Forrest Gander, and Jos Charles. Their longlisted books are Rivera’s lo terciario/the tertiary, Charles’s feeld, and Gander’s Be With.

In August, Raquel Salas Rivera was a featured reader in Poets House’s 2018 Showcase reading series, which celebrates our annual exhibition of new poetry books. You can listen to her reading here.

This fall, Gander and Charles will present talks in Poets House’s Epic Voices series, featuring epics and long poems. You can catch those two in the same week: Forrest Gander will discuss long poems by C. D. Wright on October 23, and Jos Charles will talk about Chaucer on October 25.

The finalists for the National Book Award will be announced on October 10. Stay tuned!
