Anita Barrows and Lenore Weiss

2 APRIL 2015 — thursday

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

Anita Barrow's new book of poems is Exile. Joanna Macy says of it, "While they appear first as haunting fragments of an uprooted life, there is wholeness to these poems as they compose…In the tides of the displaced and dispossessed—be they called refugees, migrants, asylum seekers—their inner experience is honored here with tact and restraint, unencumbered with political reportage or sentimentality." Her previous books of poems were publications in competitions by the Quarterly Review of Literature and Riverstone Press. She has co-translated several books of Rilke's poetry with Joanna Macy, of which Book of Hours was nominated for a PEN Translation Prize.
Lenore Weiss's new book of poems is Two Places. Sharon Doubiago says, "Lenore Weiss's psychic linguistic engagement borders on the surreal, on the transcendent, the mystical, the magical, and on the mundane and familiar." Her previous collections include Cutting Down the Last Tree on Easter Island and the chapbook Tap Dancing on the Silverado Trail. She was a finalist in the California Voices contest from Poets & Writers and a finalist for the Pablo Neruda Prize from Nimrod. She was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2012.
