Reading by Janice Harrington at the YMCA's Downtown Writer's Center

janice01 Should you find yourself in Syracuse, NY this Friday (Feb 3, 2012), you should definitely check out BOA poet Janice Harrington's reading at the YMCA's Downtown Writer's Center! Janice Harrington's first book of poetry, Even the Hollow My Body Made is Gone, won the A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize from BOA Editions as well as the Kate Tufts Discovery Award. Her second book of poetry, The Hands of Strangers: Poems from the Nursing Home, which was also published by BOA Editions, came out in 2011. She is also the winner of a 2007 National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellowship for Poetry. Harrington will be reading from both of her books of poetry this Friday and if you haven't read them already, believe me, they are truly remarkable. Again, the reading is this Friday (Feb 3, 2012) at 7:00 pm and since Valentines Day is right around the corner, you should probably bring a date! For directions to the Y's Downtown Writer's Center click here, the address is 340 Montgomery Street, Syracuse, NY 13202 click here for a copy of The Hands of Strangers: Poems from the Nursing Home
