Bird & Beckett welcomes poets Nicholas Karavatos & Dee Allen.

NICHOLAS KARAVATOS is included in the anthology Punk Rock Saved My Ass (Ukiah: Medusa’s Muse, 2010) and the latest issue of West Wind Review (University of Southern Oregon, 2010). In December 2009, Amendment Nine published his first book titled No Asylum (Arcata, 2009).

David Meltzer wrote on the back cover: “Nicholas Karavatos is a poet of great range and clarity. This book is an amazing collectanea of smart sharp political poetry in tandem with astute and tender love lyrics. All of it voiced with an impressive singularity.”

Nicholas Karavatos lives near Dubai, teaching at the American University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates. Previously he taught in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. He is a graduate of New College of California  and Humboldt State University.

Nicholas Karavatos' next poetry reading/book-signing is sponsored by the Oregon Literary Review and will be in Portland, OR on Wednesday, July 7 at Blackbird Wine Shop.
