Anita Barrows, Dawn McGuire, and David Shaddock

26 JULY 2012 — thursday

Poetry Flash presents Anita Barrows, Dawn McGuire, and David Shaddock, Moe's Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, 7:30 (510/849-2087, www.moesbooks.com)

More about the readers
Anita Barrows is a poet, translator, and child psychologist. Her published works include the award-winning collection of poetry The Road Past the View and (with Joanna Macy) Rilke's Book of Hours.
Dawn McGuire's new book of poems is The Aphasia Café. Thomas Fuller says, "Dawn McGuire's aphasia poems start from the most frightening place possible—where there are no words even to convey 'I am' or 'this is'—and then stitch the pieces of a broken world together word by word, with the intelligence of a surgeon put on earth to heal and the heart of a poet showing a lover how to love." She is a neurologist and the award-winning author of two previous books of poems, Sleeping in Africa and Hands On. She was co-winner of the 2011 Sarah Lawrence/Campbell Corner Language Exchange Poetry Prize.
David Shaddock's books of poems include Dreams Are Another Set of Muscles with an introduction by Denise Levertov and In This Place Where Something Missing Lives. His play, In The Company of Seekers, will be part of this year's Spoleto Art and Music Festival in Umbria. He has received the Power of Poetry Prize for a collection of spiritual poetry and the International Peace Poem Prize. A psychotherapist, he has also published several prose books in his field.
