Friday Night Poetry Series with Charlotte Pence and Dan Albergotti

Read It Again Bookstore is excited to welcome Charlotte Pence and Dan Albergotti to our weekly poetry series. Lynn and Susana are old friends. This should be a fun and lively conversation about poetry, craft and common interests.

Charlotte Pence-

Charlotte Pence’s first book of poems, Many Small Fires (Black Lawrence Press, 2015), received an INDIEFAB Book of the Year Award from Foreword Reviews. The book explores her father’s chronic homelessness while simultaneously detailing the
physiological changes that enabled humans to form cities, communities, and households. She is also the author of two award-winning poetry chapbooks and the editor of The Poetics of American Song Lyrics. Her poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction have recently been published in Harvard Review, Sewanee Review, Southern Review, and Brevity. In June of 2020, her next poetry collection titled Code will be published by Black Lawrence Press. A graduate of Emerson College (MFA) and the University of Tennessee (PhD), she is now the director of the Stokes Center for Creative Writing at University of South Alabama.

Dan Albergotti-

Dan Albergotti is the author of The Boatloads (BOA Editions, 2008) and Millennial Teeth (Southern Illinois University Press, 2014), as well as two chapbooks from Unicorn Press: The Use of the World (2013) and Of Air and Earth (2019). His poems have appeared in 32 Poems, The Cincinnati Review, Crazyhorse, Five Points, The Southern Review, The Virginia Quarterly Review, The Best American Poetry 2017, and two editions of The Pushcart Prize, as well as other journals and anthologies.
