Event Description: Susan Lewis and Sharon Mesmer will present their poetry at the Muhlenberg Library. Susan Lewis (susanlewis.net) is the publisher and editor of Posit (positjournal.com). Her most recent book, Heisenberg’s Salon, was just published by BlazeVOX Books. She is the author of eight other books and chapbooks, including This Visit, How to be Another, and State of the Union. Her poetry has been nominated for several Pushcart Prizes and appeared in a great number of anthologies and journals, including The Awl, Berkeley Poetry Review, Boston Review, The Brooklyn Rail, Cimarron, The Journal, The New Orleans Review, Prelude, Raritan, Seneca Review, Verse, Verse Daily, and VOLT. Sharon Mesmer (sharonmesmer.com) is a multi-genre writer — poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, and reviews — and professor of creative writing (poetry and fiction) in the undergraduate and MFA programs of New York University and the New School. Her 2015 poetry collection, Greetings From My Girlie Leisure Place from Bloof Books, was one of Entropy’s Best Poetry Collections of 2015. Her two fiction collections — The Empty Quarter and In Ordinary Time, both from Hanging Loose Press — were published in French translation by Hachette in 2005 as Ma Vie à Yonago. She was a member of the flarf collective and a Nuyorican slam semi-finalist. Her awards include a Fulbright Specialist grant, two New York Foundation for the Arts fellowships, a Jerome Foundation mentoring award, and a MacArthur Scholarship, given through the Brooklyn College MFA program through nomination by Allen Ginsberg.
