Willa Schneberg

Rob Lipton and Willa Schneberg

22 MARCH 2015 — sunday

Poetry Flash presents a reading by Rob Lipton and Willa Schneberg, request ASL interpreters one week in advance from, wheelchair accessible, Diesel, A Bookstore, 5433 College Avenue, Oakland, 3:00 (510/653-9965,

Rob Lipton's poetry collection is A Complex Bravery, about which Ilya Kaminsky says, "He writes from the consciousness of the bombed and 'the living narrator.' Worldweary, grieving, cynical, ironic, raging, from the real to the surreal, A Complex Bravery is of the dreck of our world gone mad." His forthcoming book of poems is Wiremother. He is both a poet and a spatial epidemiologist studying violence in the most dangerous cities in the USA. He has received grants from Berkeley Community Arts and Alameda Community Arts Program.
Willa Schneberg's new book of poems is Rending the Garment. Philip Schultz says, "Rending the Garment tells a familiar tale, the Jewish immigrant family romance, but with an important difference: using shifting points of view and narrative interruptions…not to mention a cast of characters lively as a borscht belt revue…A fresh, original and moving addition to our literature." She has published four previous collections, including In The Margins of The World, winner of the Oregon Book Award in Poetry, and the letterpress chapbook The Books of Esther, published in conjunction with her interdisciplinary exhibit at the Oregon Jewish Museum in fall 2012. She has read at the Library of Congress, and her poems have been presented on Garrison Keillor's radio show, The Writer's Almanac.
