Join us at 7pm on Friday, September 21st for an evening of words, wisdom, and allusions to Krazy Kat. Singularity & Co. is thrilled to be hosting a joint reading by two prominent scholar-writers, Stephen Burt and Monica Youn. These extraordinary poets' bodies of work touch upon genre boundaries and have been inspired by speculative fiction and comic books, and they promise to take us where few bards have gone before.

Stephen Burt is Professor of English at Harvard University, where he teaches courses on poetry and on science fiction: his books of poetry and criticism include Why I Am Not a Toddler and Other Poems by Cooper Bennett Burt (2011), Close Calls with Nonsense (2009), and Parallel Play (2006). His verse and prose have appeared in many journals, among them Boston Review, Colorado Review, the London Review of Books, New Haven Review, the New Yorker, the TLS, Rain Taxi, and VQR.

Monica Youn is the author of Barter (Graywolf Press 2003) and Ignatz (Four Way Books 2010), which was a finalist for the National Book Award. Her poems have been published in numerous journals and anthologies including Fence, The New Yorker, and The Paris Review. She has been a Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford University and a Witter Bynner Fellow of the Library of Congress and has taught creative writing at Pratt Institute and Columbia University. She is also a practicing lawyer and is currently the Brennan Center Constitutional Fellow at NYU Law School.
