From David Ingle, Assistant Editor, The Georgia Review:
We're headed up next week to attend the National Magazine Awards, where we've been named as a finalist in the General Excellence category for mags with a circulation of less that 100,000. Our litmag brethren Virginia Quarterly Review are also nominated in the same category, along with 3 other non-lit publications. The awards are Thursday, May 1st, at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
In conjunction with that, we're putting on 3 great readings in NYC -- two in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn -- featuring a nice mix of well-known writers and newcomers, all of whom have published in GR. Here are the basics on those:
Monday, 4/28, a reading by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Stephen Dunn and acclaimed nonfiction writer Barbara Hurd. The Dactyl Foundation, 64 Grand Street, 8pm. Free and open to the public. Sponsored by The Georgia Review, the University of Georgia Press, and W.W. Norton & Company.
Tuesday, 4/29, "A (Peach) Tree Grows in Brooklyn: Four Writers from the Pages of The Georgia Review," featuring D. Foy, Rene Houtrides, Anna Solomon, and Craig Morgan Teicher. Music by Athens, Georgia's own Brian Connell. Union Hall, 702 Union Street, Park Slope, Brooklyn. 8pm. Free and open to the public.
Friday, 5/2, "The Writer's Studio of New York Celebrates The Georgia Review" with readings by two-time National Book Critic's Circle prize-winning poet Albert Goldbarth, Pulitzer Prize winner Philip Levine, and up-and-coming fiction writer Anna Solomon.
