Otis Books/Seismicity Editions is pleased to publish Panic Cure: Poetry from Spain for the 21st Century, an anthology of poems from eleven contemporary Spanish poets, active from the 1960s through the present. Selected and translated by Forrest Gander, Panic Cure is notable for its impressive range of poetic voices. Forrest Gander is the author of more than a dozen books, including his 2011 poetry collection Core Samples from the World, a collaboration with the photographers Graciela Iturbide, Raymond Meeks, and Lucas Foglia, which was a finalist for both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award. Other books include the novel As A Friend, the poetry collections Eye Against Eye (with photographs by Sally Mann), Torn Awake, and Science & Steepleflower, as well as the essay collection Faithful Existence: Reading, Memory & Transcendence. Gander notably has translated work by Pura Lopez Colome, Kiwao Nomura (with Kyoko Yoshida, which won the Best Translated Book Award for 2012), Coral Bracho, and Jaime Saenz (with Kent Johnson). The recipient of fellowships from the NEA, the Guggenheim, Howard, and Whiting Foundations, Gander was named a United States Artists Rockefeller Fellow in 2008. He is Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Brown.

Seating is limited.
