Born in Salem, Massachusetts, poet and playwright Ariana Reines earned a BA from Barnard College, and completed graduate work at both Columbia University and the European Graduate School, where she studied literature, performance, and philosophy. Her books of poetry include The Cow (2006), which won the Alberta Prize from Fence Books; Coeur de Lion (2007); and Mercury (2011). Her poems have been anthologized in Against Expression (2011) and Gurlesque (2010). Known for her interest in bodily experience, the occult, new media, and the possibilities of the long or book-length form, Reines has been described as "one of the crucial voices of her generation" by Michael Silverblatt on NPR?s Bookworm. At once personal, Romantic, slippery, and extreme, Reines's poetry investigates and overturns lyric conventions. Of her own work, she admitted in an interview with HTML Giant: ?My best writing seems to have to be forced from me by some other force but that force has to be one whose power I agree to serve.?
This reading is presented in cooperation with the Poem Present Reading and Lecture Series at The University of Chicago. The event will be at Midway Studios 108, 929 E. 60th St., on the campus of the University.

Jason Lescalleet makes his music using a collection of vintage reel-to-reel tape recorders and simple electronics, running loops of crumpled tape between machines. He blends layers of found sound, amplified silences, and artifacts of everyday noise, all transformed through various microphones and speakers. In his much anticipated return to Chicago, he'll play with the resonance of Bond Chapel's neo-Gothic space.Jason Lescalleet will perform at Bond Chapel (1050 East 59th Street ) on the campus of The University of Chicago. Admission is free and open to the public; no RSVP required. The concert is presented in partnership with Lampo and is generously sponsored by Leslie Bodenstein and Jason Pickleman.
