 On Sunday, March 24, from 3-4:30 pm, Eldorado resident and Santa Fe Poet Laureate Jon Davis will host “Santa Fe Poets 1,” the first of six readings that will take place over the next fifteen months at various venues in and around Santa Fe. Each reading will feature a different group of five poets reading with the poet laureate.

At this first reading, Davis will read from a new manuscript and from his most recent book, Preliminary Report, published by Copper Canyon Press in 2010. In addition to being Santa Fe’s fourth poet laureate, Davis is director of the new Low Residency MFA Program at the Institute of American Indian Arts, where he has taught for 22 years.

 The other readers will be Dana Levin, who teaches at Santa Fe University of Art & Design and is the author of three books, including Sky Burial (Copper Canyon Press, 2011); Gabe Gomez, author of The Outer Bands (U. of Notre Dame Press, 2006) and Seed Bank (Mouthfeel Books, 2012); Ungelbah Daniel Davila, author of the chapbook Outlaw Neon, which is forthcoming in Effigies II from Salt Press; and Deborah Casillas, whose poems have appeared in Ontario Review, Crab Orchard Review, Prairie Schooner, and North American Review.
