LEWISBURG, Pa. — The Stadler Center for Poetry at Bucknell University will host a joint poetry reading by Sascha Feinstein and C. Dale Young on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m. in Bucknell Hall.
Feinstein teaches at Lycoming College and in the MFA in Writing program at Vermont College of Fine Arts.
His second poetry collection, Ajanta's Ledge, was recently published by Sheep Meadow Press; his first, Misterioso, received the Hayden Carruth Award. His other books include a memoir (Black Pearls: Improvisations on a Lost Year), a collection of interviews (Ask Me Now: Conversations on Jazz and Literature), and two critical books on jazz poetry.
He has co-edited four books of jazz-related literature and, in 1996, founded Brilliant Corners: A Journal of Jazz and Literature, which he still edits.
In addition to his reading, Feinstein will give a presentation on jazz and memory at 4 p.m. Nov. 13 in C. Willard Smith Library, Vaughan Literature Building.
Young, who practices medicine full time, also teaches creative writing at the Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers. He is the author of three collections of poetry, the most recent of which is Torn (Four Way Books, 2011). He also edits poetry for the New England Review.
A recipient of fellowships from the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, Yaddo, and the National Endowment for the Arts, he is one of 10 poets awarded a 2012 Fellowship in Poetry from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.
In addition to his reading, Young will speak about balancing careers in the arts and medicine at noon Nov. 13 in Walls Lounge (Room 213) of the Elaine Langone Center.
