On September 25th, Jordan Zandi, author of Solarium, will be reading at the Last Sunday Poetry Reading and Open Mic as part of The Writers Guild at Bloomington. Zandi will be reading with Jason Ammerman, author of Dreaming is Nothing but Dreaming and All Grown Up. The reading is set to take place at the Bloomington and Monroe Country Convention Center in Bloomington, Indiana.
"Simplicity is the highest form of sophistication,” Da Vinci said, and Jordan Zandi was listening. Rather than overpower the reader with flashy intelligence or dazzle via the latest fashion, this poet offers startling discoveries of expression. With straightforward syntax and diction Zandi’s poems find their way to fresh sound and unexplored regions of the interior.
Jordan Zandi grew up in the rural Midwest, and in 2011 graduated with an MFA in poetry from Boston University, where he was the recipient of a Robert Pinsky Global Fellowship to Bolivia. His poetry has appeared in The New Republic and Little Star.
