A New Series: Person Place Thing and 500 Women Scientists

Why can’t a person go to a bar and hear less about the White House and more about galactic dynmics, magma flow, or Staphylococcus aureus? Problem solved. In the first half of 2019, we’ll present three evenings with women scientists doing fascinating research – astrophysicist Sarah Pearson, volcanologist Einat Lev, and microbiologist Davida Smith, in conversation with Randy Cohen, host of Person Place Thing. Science and liquor: natural companions. Plus live music? All the better.

Randy Cohen’s first professional work was writing humor pieces, essays, and stories for newspapers and magazines (The New Yorker, Harpers, the Atlantic, Young Love Comics). His first television work was writing for “Late Night With David Letterman” for which he won three Emmy awards. His fourth Emmy was for his work on Michael Moore’s “TV Nation.” He received a fifth Emmy as a result of a clerical error, and he kept it. For twelve years he wrote “The Ethicist,” a weekly column for the New York Times Magazine. In 2010, his first play, “The Punishing Blow,” ran at New York’s Clurman Theater. His most recent book, “Be Good: how to navigate the ethics of everything,” was published by Chronicle. He is currently the creator and host of Person Place Thing, a public radio program.

Person Place Thing is an interview show based on this idea: people are particularly engaging when they speak, not directly about themselves, but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. The result: surprising stories from great talkers. We do the show in front of an audience, with live music, and then edit a version for broadcast across WAMC Northeast Public Radio. You can stream our archive at PersonPlaceThing.org or download episodes via iTunes.

Poets & Traitors Press & Party

November 11, 2018
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

MISSION
Poets & Traitors Press is an independent publisher of books of original poetry and translations by a single author/translator. Poets & Traitors seeks to showcase authors who travel between writing and translation, artists for whom Language is made manifest through languages and whose own word carries, shapes, and is shaped by that of another.

Poets & Traitors
views translation as forming part of a continuum with the creative writer’s work. Most poetry presses and contests explicitly forbid the inclusion of any translated work, while the handful of independent presses that publish translations are not concerned with translators as writers. Poets & Traitors aims to demolish this wall between writing and translation by publishing books that cultivate a dialogue between the two—books that combine poetry and translations by one writer-translator.
HISTORY
Since 2013, the Poet/Translator Reading Series has showcased the work of such writer-translators as Matvei Yankelevich, Liz Wessel Clark, Eugene Ostashevsky, Johnny Lorenz, Ian Dreiblatt, Ainslie Morse, Bela Shayevich, and Margarita Shalina. Beginning in 2014, the series has also hosted the final readings of the New School Literary Translation Workshops. These workshops have been comprised of writer-translators working from Arabic, Modern Hebrew, Chinese, Spanish, French, German, Albanian, Norwegian, Swedish, Turkish, Odia, and Ukrainian. These workshops are alternately led by Val Vinokur and Tony Anemone and form the core of the Minor in Literary Translation at The New School.

Readers include: Ahmad Al-Ashqar
Johnny Lorenz
Val Vinokur
