Jim Dine was born in 1935. He has been a painter, sculptor, and poet
all his life. This is his second reading in 40 years.

Vincent Katz is a poet, translator, art critic, editor, and curator.
He is the author of nine books of poetry, including Cabal of Zealots
(1988, Hanuman Books), Pearl (1998, powerhouse books), Understanding
Objects (2000, Hard Press), and Rapid Departures (2005, with artist
Mario Cafiero). His new book, Judge (2007, Charta/Libellum) is a
collaboration with artist Wayne Gonzales that takes its words entirely
from The New York Times. Katz writes frequently on contemporary art and
has published essays or articles on the work of Jennifer Bartlett,
Francesco Clemente, Jim Dine, Robert Rauschenberg, Kiki Smith, Philip
Taaffe, and Cy Twombly. He won the 2005 National Translation Award,
given by the American Literary Translators Association, for his book of
translations from Latin, The Complete Elegies of Sextus Propertius
(2004, Princeton University Press).

Diana Michener was born in Boston in 1940. She has had many exhibitions
of her photographs in the U.S. and Europe. In 2001, she was given a
retrospective at the Maison Européene de la Photographie in Paris. A
book of her photographs and writing, DOGS, FIRES, ME, was published by
Steidl Verlag in 2005.
