The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown will present readings by poets Gail Mazur and Keith Althaus on Saturday, March 4, at 8 p.m.

Both Mazur and Althaus are previous chairs of the Work Center’s Writing Committee, and both have recently published new volumes of their selected poems.

The reading will take place in the Stanley Kunitz Common Room at the Fine Arts Work Center, 24 Pearl St., Provincetown. Admission is free.

Mazur’s new book is “Zeppo’s First Wife: New and Selected Poems.” Her previous collections include “Nightfire” (1978), “The Pose of Happiness” (1986), “The Common” (1995), and “They Can’t Take That Away from Me” (2001), which was a finalist for the National Book Award. She is the founding director of the Blacksmith House Poetry Center in Cambridge. Her many awards include fellowships from the Bunting Institute of Radcliffe College and the NEA. Currently she is the Distinguished Writer-in-Residence at the Emerson College Literature and Publishing Program.

Althaus’s new book is “Ladder of Hours: Poems 1969-2005,” published by Ausable Press. In 1969, he was one of the seven young writers who comprised the first class of Work Center writing Fellows. His work has appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry, The Yale Review, The American Poetry Review, and Virginia Quarterly Review, among many others. His earlier collection, “Rival Heavens,” was published by Provincetown Arts Press in 1993.
