Redmond-based poet Gary Miranda will read from his latest book, "The Must-Be-Admired Things: Collected Poems & Translation," at Paulina Springs Books on Thursday, February 22 at 6:30 p.m. His son Nicolas Miranda will provide live music before and after. Nicolas has performed widely in the Northwest, both as a solo instrumentalist and as a member of various duets, trios, and bands.

"The Must-Be-Admired-Things" is a collection of four previously published poetry books by Gary Miranda. The collection includes "Listeners at the Breathing Place," which won the Princeton Contemporary Poetry competition, "Grace Period, Turning Sixty," and a translation of Rainer Maria Rilke's "Duino Elegies."

Miranda has taught writing and literature as Fulbright Lecturer at the University of Athens, Greece, and as poet-in-residence at Reed College. His poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Poetry, Northwest Review and elsewhere. His first book, "Listeners at the Breathing Place," won the Princeton Contemporary Poetry Competition.

Miranda's awards for poetry include an NEA Fellowship, nine awards from the Poetry Society of America, and an invitation by The Atlantic Monthly to serve as poet-in-residence at the Robert Frost Place in Franconia, New Hampshire.

His poems have been taped for inclusion in Harvard University's Lamont Poetry Collection and in the Library of Congress Poetry Archive.

Miranda received the 2023 Stewart H. Holbrook Literary Legacy Award presented by Oregon Literary Arts "in recognition of significant contributions that have enriched Oregon's literary community."
