MORE ABOUT THE READERS
This reading is a celebration of three new books from Autumn House Press.
Chana Bloch’s Swimming in the Rain is a new and selected poems, 1980-2015. Henri Cole says, “Chana Bloch is writing the best poems of her life…[She] is like a Japanese potter mending the cracked and dinged pottery of experience with gold powder sprinkled from her fingers.” Selections from her four previous books, Secrets of the Tribe, The Past keeps Changing, Mrs. Dumpty, and Blood Honey are here along with a generous group of new poems. She is also an eminent translator of Hebrew poetry, including The Song of Songs and works of Yehuda Amichai and Dalia Ravikovitch.
Andrea Hollander was born in Germany to American parents and raised in the U.S. Her collections include House without a Dreamer, winner of the Nicholas Roerich Poetry prize, The Other Life, Woman in the Painting, and Landscape with a Female Figure: New and Selected Poems, 1982-2012. Among her honors are two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the D. H. Lawrence Fellowship, and a Pushcart Prize in prose memoir.
Danusha Laméris’s first book of poems is The Moons of August. Dorianne Laux says, “This book of motherhood, memory, and elegiac urgency crosses borders, cultures, and languages to bring us the good news of being alive. With language clear as water and rich as blood, The Moons of August offers a human communion we can all believe in.” Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts to a Dutch father and a mother from Barbados, she lived briefly in Beirut during the civil war in Lebanon but was principally raised in Mill Valley and Berkeley. After studying painting at UCSC, she has dedicated herself to poetry.
