  • Gjertrud Schnackenberg: Winner of the Rome Prize from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters; author of six poetry collections, including most recently Heavenly Questions.
  • Nicole Terez Dutton: Author of the collection If One of Us Should Fall, winner of the Cave Canem Poetry Prize, and the inaugural poet laureate of Somerville.

  • Richard Hoffman: Author of the acclaimed memoir Half the House, just reissued in a twentieth-anniversary edition; poet, fiction writer, and past chair of PEN New England.

and the opening of a new dimension: our music host, Mali Sastri—lead of the avant-chamber-rock band Jaggery—will present a Boston-area act to play two original songs for us.

All of this to herald the 82nd print issue from one of the country’s finest and most productively restless literary magazines.  The new fall issue features stories by Malerie Willens, Ihab Hassan, and Colin Fleming; poems by Kathleen Graber, Julia Hartwig, and Bob Hicok; essays by Andrea Barrett and Susan McCallum-Smith; an abstract comic by Rosaire Appel; and much more.  Buy it in person on October 20th, or subscribe now to receive your copy in the mail.

This high-value event is free and open to the public. For further information contact AGNI Senior Editor William Pierce at or (617) 353-7135 or visit AGNI Online at
