Arthur Sze, award-winning poet and current director of the creative writing program at the Institute for American Indian Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico, will read from his work at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 31 at Tasty World on the corner of Broad and Jackson streets. The doors will open at 7 p.m. for this event, which is open to the public.
Sze’s visit is sponsored by the Georgia Poetry Circuit, a consortium of schools that has brought some 75 nationally known poets to the state over the past 22 years. The Georgia Review, the University of Georgia’s quarterly journal of arts and letters—now in its 60th year of continuous publication—has been the UGA coordinator since the Poetry Circuit’s inception.
A second-generation Chinese American, Sze was born in New York City in 1950. He was educated at the University of California, Berkeley, and he has published numerous poetry collections, including Quipa (2005), Silk Dragon (2001), The Redshifting Web: New and Selected Poems (1998), Archipelago (1995) and Dazzled (1982).
