More about the poet
Julie Bruck's new book of poems is Monkey Ranch. Cornelius Eady says, "I have long considered Julie Bruck to be one of our most committed and humane voices. Bruck sees everything we do; she just seems to see it wiser. Her poems sing and roil with everything complicated and joyous we human monkeys are." Her other collections include The End of Travel and The Woman Downstairs. Born and raised in Montreal, she now lives in San Francisco with her family. Her honors include two Gold Canadian National Magazine Awards, grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, and two Pushcart nominations.
Sunnylyn Thibodeaux's new book of poems is Palm to Pine. Julien Poirier says, "In Palm to Pine, Sunnylyn Thibodeaux taps community as its source; the community of things present, of light and sound, of memory and imagination. These poems explore the collected senses of the day-to-day while telling the tale of another place, as if in time travel, inviting the reader to come and go with and partake in the toast." She has published a number of chapbooks, including 20/20 Yielding, Room Service Calls, and the forthcoming Against What Light. She is co-editor of Auguste Press and Lew Gallery Editions.
