The Art Academy of Cincinnati welcomes poet Adam Fell for a free public reading of his work at 7:00PM this Thursday, April 17th, in Room N206. This is the second and final reading in the 2013-14 AAC Poetry Series. The series is sponsored by the Liberal Arts Department.
Adam Fell is the author of Dear Corporation (H_NGM_N Books, 2014) and I Am Not a Pioneer (H_NGM_N Books, 2012), winner of the 2011 Posner Best Poetry Book Award from the Council for Wisconsin Writers. He teaches at Edgewood College in Madison, WI, where he co-curates the Monsters of Poetry reading series.
In addition to Fell, AAC Creative Writing students Chloë Bell, Millie Ferguson, Billy Golden, Hannah Hersko and Sam McCormick will open the event with readings from their work.
Immediately following the featured event, there will be a short open mic for anyone else who’d like to share their work, then Adam will be available to answer questions and sign books. As always, coffee and fresh-baked roller skates will be available to take the edge off.
See links below to some poems from Adam’s new book Dear Corporation, which American Microreviews describes as devoting, “itself to an idea that Corporate Personhood—our Dear Corporation—carries out its investments, its conflicting strategies of selling junk and earning trust, within any one of us. It is a sympathetic idea, gently pushed at times, at other times more insistent, that transforms Dear Corporation into a remarkable protest, one that, by getting at the difficulties of acceptance, even forgiveness, cautiously offers clues for carrying the fight forward.”
