Poets Erica Bernheim, Dan Chiasson, Srikanth Reddy, Robyn Schiff and Emily Wilson read selections from the new anthology, "Legitimate Dangers: American Poets of the New Century" which was edited by Iowa Writers' Workshop alumni Michael Dumanis and Cate Marvin. All the 85 poets featured in the anthology were born after 1960 and published their first book within the last 10 years. A review in Publishers Weekly observed, "this anthology uncaps the concerns of contemporary life, releasing vapors to mix with the contemporary imagination."
