Poet Schoonebeek to Read in Hartwick’s Visiting Writers Series

January 6, 2017

Danniel Schoonebeek of Delhi and Brooklyn will read from his poetry on Tuesday, January 17 at noon in Eaton Lounge, Bresee Hall, on the College campus. Admission is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Schoonebeek’s first book of poems, American Barricade (YesYes Books, 2014) was named one of the year’s 10 standout debuts by Poets & Writers, and called “a groundbreaking first book that stands to influence its author’s generation” by Boston Review.

In 2015, he was awarded a Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry fellowship from the Poetry Foundation, and his second book of poems, Trébuchet, was selected as a winner of the 2015 National Poetry Series and published by University of Georgia Press in 2016.

Schoonebeek’s recent work has appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry, Kenyon Review, The Believer, and Tin House, and been featured in the anthologies Please Excuse This Poem: 100 New Poets for the Next Generation (Viking, 2015), Best American Experimental Writing (Omnidawn, 2014), and Privacy Policy: The Anthology of Surveillance Poetics (Black Ocean, 2014).

A recipient of awards and honors from Poets House, the Millay Colony for the Arts, Oregon State University, and the Akademie Schloss Solitude, Schoonebeek hosts the Hatchet Job reading series in Brooklyn, and edits the PEN Poetry Series.

He is also a co-organizer and founding member of Bushel, an open space for exhibitions, performances, and other arts use in Delhi.

The reading is presented under the auspices of the Department of English and the Visiting Writers Series at Hartwick College.
