Weis Center Sessions #47: Andrew Ciotola reads “Try to Praise the Mutilated World” by Adam Zagajewski

Welcome to our 47th installment of Weis Center Sessions.

We end National Poetry Month with a reading by Andrew Ciotola, program manager at the Stadler Center for Poetry & Literary Arts. Andrew is also the managing/book review editor for West Branch, Bucknell’s professional literary journal.

Andrew has served on panels devoted to literary editing and arts administration for the Association for Writers & Writing Programs and the Community of Literary Magazines & Presses, and on grant panels for the Pennsylvania and New Jersey state arts agencies.

He recently completed a three-year term as co-chair of the Bucknell Arts Council.

Andrew chose Adam Zagajewski’s poem, “Try to Praise the Mutilated World,” for a variety of reasons, as he describes in the video’s introduction. Zagajewski, who died on March 21, was Sojka Visiting Poet at Bucknell during the 2008-09 academic year.

Recorded at and produced by the Weis Center for the Performing Arts.
