Daniel Becker & Kristen Staby Rembold

Join us for a reading with poets Daniel Becker and Kristen Staby Rembold. Daniel Becker will be reading from his recent work, and Kristen Staby Rembold will be reading from her new collection, The Harvesters. This in-person event will be cosponsored by WriterHouse and will be free and open to the public. We recommend arriving early for the best seating.

“Write what you know,” they say at writing school, so Daniel Becker’s poems ask a lot of questions. Mostly innocent questions. As a physician of general internal medicine, he has been seeing patients and teaching at UVA since 1985. He retired in 2020, and since then he’s been seeing patients and teaching part time. His first book of poems, 2nd Chance, won the New Issues Press first book prize. His next book, Plan B, is in the planning stage.

Kristen Staby Rembold is the author of two books of poetry, Music Lesson, published in 2019, and The Harvesters, out in January 2023, as well as two poetry chapbooks and a novel, Felicity. Her work has appeared in numerous journals including Cider Press Review, The HopperSouth 85 JournalRadar PoetryLiterary MamaAppalachiaSmartish Pace, and New Ohio Review, and has also been nominated for Best of the Net. She lives in Charlottesville, has taught at WriterHouse, and is currently finishing her next poetry collection and working on new fiction.
