We’re celebrating the two latest issues of Two Lines with a special focus on women in translation. Lovers of poetry, translation, small presses, open cocktail bars, and cutting-edge literature are encouraged to attend!

We’re so excited to be partnering with the Poetry Society of America in bringing an all-star cast of readers to the event: Norma Cole, Maxine Chernoff, Gillian Conoley, Ani Gjika, and Lizzie Davis.

Don’t miss a chance to be part of the conversation!
