Linda Arntzenius

In 1992, poet James Ragan was in Los Angeles during the riots that followed the Rodney King beating. That same year, he watched his native Czechoslovakia divide itself into two separate nations. The two events drive the poems in his 1995 collection, The Hunger Wall.

On Tuesday, May 6, at 7:30 p.m., Mr. Ragan will read from this collection as well as his books Womb-Weary (1990), Lusions (1997), and The World-Shouldering “I” (2000) during a US1 Poets’ Cooperative Special Poetry Reading in front of the second floor fireplace in the Princeton Public Library.
