Join us to celebrate poets Brett Fletcher Lauer
and Stefania Heim
and raise a glass to their debut books, A Hotel in Belgium
and A Table That Goes On for Miles
Matthew Zapruder on A Hotel in Belgium
(Four Way Books): "...These poems are serious, funny, confident, weird, sensitive, and generous. They achieve something close to Frank O'Hara's dream of 'true abstraction,' a deeply personal and human tone that does not resort to the limiting confines of the specifics of autobiography. This book points forward to a new exciting direction in American poetry, and I am so glad we can finally take it with us into the future."
Wayne Koestenbaum on A Table That Goes on For Miles
(Switchback Books): "Reading these phenomenal and profoundly philosophical poems, I think of still lives by Giorgio Morandi—careful, enigmatic arrangements of the ordinary. Heim's acoustic elegance places her in the front ranks of those who pursue the plainspoken sublime."
