Hugo House says
Hugo House and Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry present Geoffrey Nutter, reading from Cities at Dawn (Wave Books, 2016) and other poems in the Fireside Room at Hotel Sorrento.

Poet Bill Carty (Huge Cloudy, forthcoming from Octopus Books) will lead a Q&A following the reading.

"Though its tone is almost always calmly descriptive, whatever it describes is always somehow something else and not itself."
–Barry Schwabsky (Hyperallergic)

"These poems are the multi-angled jewels whose light is derived from the fragments Nutter calls out directly." –Greg Bem (Yellow Rabbits)


Geoffrey Nutter is the author of A Summer Evening (winner of the 2001 Colorado Prize), Water’s Leaves & Other Poems (Winner of the 2004 Verse Press Prize), Christopher Sunset (winner of the 2011 Sheila Motton Book Award), The Rose of January (Wave Books, 2013), and Cities at Dawn (Wave Books, 2016). He has taught poetry at Princeton, Columbia, University of Iowa, NYU, and the New School, and currently teaches Greek and Latin Classics at Queens College. He runs the Wallson Glass Poetry Seminars in New York City.

Bill Carty has recently published in Poetry Northwest, Octopus, Pinwheel, and Sixth Finch. His chapbook Refugium was published by Alice Blue Books. He was a 2012-13 Made at Hugo House fellow and is currently a fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA.


The Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry is a nonprofit that provides leading poets with the opportunity to explore in-depth their own thinking on the subject of poetry and poetics, and through financial and logistical support, to arrange for the delivery of lectures that result from these investigations. The Seattle Series, an extension of this work, brings lectures, workshops, poetry readings, and other investigations of poetics to the area in collaboration with great partners like Hugo House and the UW Bothell Creative Writing Program.
