Rhonda Zimlich in Icarus Down Review

“Acro Circus,” a story by Rhonda Zimlich, will be published in the May issue of Icarus Down Review.  The story is a dark rendering of turn-of-the-century circus entertainers and uses the first-person vernacular and specific jargon of trapeze artists to convey a sinister twist.

Maranhao and Levitin at LCC on April 19


Salgado Maranhão is the best known poet of his generation in Brazil. He and Alexis Levitin, translator of Maranhão’s poetry and stories from the Portuguese, will be featured at Lane Community College on Tuesday, April 19, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the Center for Meeting and Learning. Here in the U.S., Maranhão’s bilingual collection Blood of the Sun (Milkweed Editions) was published in 2012. His second book, published this past fall, is Tiger Fur (White Pine Press, 2015). Maranhão may be of special interest as an Afro-Brazilian success story, having risen from rural impoverishment to the peak of poetic achievement in his country. He is also well-known for his song lyrics and recordings with some of Brazil’s leading jazz and pop musicians. This event is co-sponsored by Lane’s Cultural Competency Professional Development Committee and the Lane Honors Program.
