Matthew Dickman, internationally acclaimed poet, will give a reading at 7 p.m. on October 23 as part of the Marylhurst Reading Series.

The Huffington Post says:

Matthew Dickman's poetry has always reminded me of why I fell in love with poetry. I think it will make others remember, too; it may even make you fall in love with poetry for the first time.

Publisher's Weekly says:

Mayakovsky's Revolver by Matthew Dickman [is] a raw, frightening collection that tackles, among other things, reasons to live.

Vanity Fair says:

Matthew Dickman reaffirms his rising-star status with Mayakovsky's Revolver. His poems in the section Notes Passed to My Brother on the Occasion of His Funeral strike at the soul.

Matthew Dickman is the author of two chapbooks, Amigos and Something about a Black Scarf, and two full-length poetry collections. His first book, All-American Poem, was winner of the 2008 American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize in Poetry, published by American Poetry Review and distributed by Copper Canyon Press. He was also the winner of the 2009 Kate Tufts Discovery Award for that book, and the inaugural May Sarton Award from the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. His second full collection of poetry, Mayakovsky's Revolver, was published by Norton in 2012. He is also co-author of the 2012 poetry collection 50 American Plays, published by Copper Canyon Press. Dickman and his twin brother, poet Michael Dickman, were the subject of an April 6, 2009 New Yorker profile.
