Ben Berman (Poetry Fellow ’08) is a teacher, poetry editor at Solstice Literary Magazine, and author of two books. Ben discussed the evolution of his first poetry collection, Strange Borderlands, in an ArtSake post from December 2012.
Ben’s most recent poetry collection Figuring in the Figure is being published this month by Able Muse Press, and Ben will read from it at Brookline Booksmith on Thursday, March 16, 2017, 7 PM.
Based on ArtSake’s brief interview with Ben shortly after he won his 2008 award, it’s no surprise that humor plays an important role in Figuring in the Figure, which explores (among other things) the poet’s experience of fatherhood.
