Cammy Thomas and Bill Mayer

19 MARCH 2015 — thursday

Poetry Flash presents a poetry reading by Cammy Thomas and Bill Mayer, request ASL interpreters one week in advance from, wheelchair accessible, Moe's Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, 7:30 (510/849-2087,

Bill Mayer's most recent book of poems is Articulate Matter. Grace Schulman says of it, "The best of these poems are transcendent, bringing the sacred into common life…I like, too, the tone. This work is genuine." He has published three previous collections, including The Uncertainty Principle, and a fifth, A Truce With Fantasy, is forthcoming. He is also a professional photographer, who collaborated on a photographic essay, Hummingbirds, with Tony Keppelman, published by Little Brown, and he is editor and publisher of Paroikia Press.
Cammy Thomas's new book of poems is Inscriptions. Daniel Tobin says, "The poems of Cammy Thomas's second collection, Inscriptions, have an emotional ferocity and lyric intensity that cut to the quick of desolating loss and fraught family legacies…The implacable balm Thomas offers, and the mercy, is her refusal to look away." She is the author of a first collection, Cathedral of Wish, recipient of the 2006 Norma Farber First Book Prize, selected by Medbh McGuckian.
