Harvey and Lonsinger to give poetry reading Nov. 12

LEWISBURG – Poets Yona Harvey and Dawn Lonsinger will give a reading of their works at 7 p.m. Nov. 12 in the Stadler Center for Poetry in Bucknell Hall at Bucknell University.

Harvey, a literary artist living in Pittsburgh, is the author of the poetry collection “Hemming the Water” (Four Way Books: New York, 2013), and the recipient of an Individual Artist Grant from The Pittsburgh Foundation.

Lonsinger is the 2013 Drew Darrow Memorial Poet.

She is the author of Whelm, winner of Lost Horse Press’s 2012 Idaho Poetry Prize, and two chapbooks: the linoleum crop (chosen by Thomas Lux as the winner of the 2007 Jeanne Duval Editions Contest) and The Nested Object (Dancing Girl Press, 2009).

This Memorial Reading Series honors the memory of Drew Darrow, a 1986 Bucknell graduate. He died in 1997.

The reading, which is free and open to the public, is co-sponsored by the Stadler Center for Poetry and the Writing Center, with support from Drew Darrow’s family and friends.

A reception and book signing will follow the reading.
