Word for Word Poetry: Tina Chang, Major Jackson, Tom Thompson

The Academy of American Poets presents a new reading series this summer in the Bryant Park Reading Room. Free and open to the public, the readings highlight emerging poets and take place on June 14, July 12, and August 9. The featured poets on August 9 will be Tina Chang, Major Jackson, and Tom Thompson.

Tina Chang is the author of Half-Lit Houses (Four Way Books, 2004). She is currently co-editing an anthology of South Asian, East Asian, and Middle Eastern poetry. She teaches at Hunter College and Sarah Lawrence.

Major Jackson’s collection of poetry, Leaving Saturn, a Cave Canem Poetry Prize selection, was short-listed for the National Book Critics Circle Award. His second collection of poetry, Hoops, is forthcoming from W.W. Norton. He teaches at the University of Vermont and Queens University in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Tom Thompson is the author of Live Feed and the forthcoming collection The Pitch, both published by Alice James Books. He works at an advertising agency, and lives in New York City with the poet Miranda Field and their two sons.
