Nicole Callihan & Jennifer Knox
April 29 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Magic City Books is proud to welcome poets Nicole Callihan and Jennifer Knox for a special Independent Bookstore Day poetry conversation on Saturday April 29 at 2:00 pm in the Algonquin Room at Magic City Books.
Nicole Callihan writes poems, stories, and essays. Her work has appeared, or is forthcoming in, among others, American Poetry Review, Painted Bride Quarterly, Tin House, Copper Nickel, Kenyon Review, and as a Poem-a-Day feature from the Academy of American Poets. In September 2020, Nicole was diagnosed with Stage II bilateral breast cancer and subsequently underwent a double mastectomy, four follow-up surgeries, and radiation therapy. Her latest book, This Strange Garment (Terrapin 2023), navigates that diagnosis and treatment.
Jennifer Knox’s poems have appeared five times in the Best American Poetry series and in publications such as the New York Times, the New Yorker and American Poetry Review. Jennifer’s fifth book of poems, Crushing It, was published by Copper Canyon Press in 2020.
This event is free and open to the public.
