Gary Jackson Reading in Santa Fe Nov. 10

Collected Works Bookstore
Gabrielle Calvocoressi and Gary Jackson
Saturday, November 10, 4pm

Gary Jackson’s first collection is Missing You, Metropolis, (selected by Yusef Komunyakaa as winner of the 2009 Cave Canem Poetry Prize). With humor and the serious collector’s delight, Gary Jackson imagines the comic-book worlds of Superman, Batman, and the X-Men alongside the veritable worlds of Kansas, racial isolation, and the gravesides of a sister and a friend.

An MFA graduate from the University of New Mexico, Jackson currently teaches full-time at Central New Mexico Community College in Albuquerque and at the Murray State University low-res MFA program in Murray, KY. He is a contributing editor at Catch Up: A journal of comics and literature, and has been a fierce lover of comics for over twenty years. Two poems:
