A month of FSG poetry
A Month of FSG
Poetry Month. For the next thirty days we will have poems for you in all
shapes and sizes, credos and conceits. And this year, we'll have them for
both your eyes and ears. Each day, a friendly bookseller, critic, or
publisher will share one of their favorite FSG poems. And, drawing
inspiration from John Giornio's classic Dial-A-Poem, each day you will be
able to call 949-DIAL-FSG (949-342-5374) to hear our President and
Publisher (and poet himself!) Jonathan Galassi recite one of his favorite poems
from a recently published collection. We're putting new poems on the
answering machine every weekday, so keep calling!
To mark the occasion, we will also be offering to three lucky winners an
enviable bundle of poetry from FSG poets both new (Louise Glück, John
Koethe, Carl Phillips, Eleanor Chai, Rowan Ricardo Phillips, and Henri
Cole) and old (Elizabeth Bishop, Seamus Heaney, John Berryman, and a very
special reissue of Marianne Moore's Observations).
