Congrats to two BOA authors

We want to extend a special congrats to BOA author Aracelis Girmay and translator Deniz Perin! Aracelis' forthcoming collection, Kingdom Animalia, has been chosen as the Rumpus Poetry Book Club Selection for August. The club makes copies of the book available one month prior to its publication date and also features interviews with selected authors. It's a wonderful way to spread the word about outstanding new poetry books and an auspicious start for Kingdom Animalia. Find out more about the Rumpus Poetry Book Club here: http://therumpus.net/the-rumpus-poetry-book-club/. Kingdom Animalia is being published in September as winner of BOA's 2011 Isabella Gardner Award. BOA translator Deniz Perin has received a Lannan Residency Fellowship. She will be a resident in Marfa, TX, from June 8 to July 8. As part of the fellowship, she will also be doing a reading on June 2nd at the Marfa Bookstore and she will be interviewed on their local radio station. Deniz translated Book of the Edge by Turkish poet Ece Temelkuran. Congratulations to Aracelis and Deniz on their well-deserved honors!
