More about the readers
Connie Post's new book of poems is Floodwater. Ellen Bass says, "Connie Post writes 'there are lost fish swimming at our feet' and indeed these poems are filled with the losses of a lifetime. Yet time and again, Connie has the courage to reach for healing.… "Floodwater is a brave book full of lyric moments." She was Livermore's first Poet Laureate (2005-2009), creating two popular reading series during her term. Winner of the 2009 Caesura Poetry Award, she was short-listed for the Comstock Review's Muriel Craft Bailey Award five times.
Zara Raab's new book of poems is Fracas & Asylum. Jean Nordhaus says of it, "Her language is playful, even mischievous at times, always surprising and original. In her formal daring and thematic breadth, Raab bears witness to much that is broken and awry in the world and labors in her poetry towards a restoration of wholeness." Her first two collections are The Book of Gretel and Swimming the Eel. Her chapbook, a finalist for the Dana Award, Rumpelstiltskin, or What's in a Name, has just been published, and that is what she'll be reading from at this event. Her essays and reviews are widely published; she's also contributing editor to Redwood Coast Review and Poetry Flash.
