More about the readers
Poet and prose writer Sharon Doubiago will read from the second volume of her memoir My Father's Love, this volume entitled "The Legacy." The center of this book is father-daughter incest; Lynn Sacco says of it, "…her prose achieves the power of poetry, demonstrating as much as describing the pain, fear, and dislocation that incest created in her family." Doubiago is a celebrated poet and fiction writer, making her name with the feminist epic Hard Country. She's won three Pushcart Prizes for poetry and fiction; among her other honors, Psyche Drives the Coast won the Oregon Book Award for Poetry, and her book-length poem South America Mi Hija was twice nominated for a National Book Award and was selected best book of the year by the LA Weekly.

Lindy Hough's new book of poems is Wild Horses, Wild Dreams, New and Selected Poems 1971-2010. Bobby Byrd says, "I'm delighted to follow along, as the poems pick a way through intellectual, cultural, and personal histories. They are hers, but mine too. These wild horses, these wild dreams—she's become wise in the making of her poems." She is the author of four books of poetry and the editor of Nuclear Strategy and the Code of the Warrior. Along with her husband Richard Grossinger she founded the literary magazine Io in the 1960s and North Atlantic Books in the 1970s.
