MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Sharon Dolin's new book of poems is Manual for Living. Matthea Harvey says, "Manual for Living contains poems that bloom via rhyme and wordplay into complex and disarming self-knowledge and self-instruction. There is comfort and delight in the movement and mind of these poems." She is the author of five previous collections, including Burn and Dodge, winner of the Donald Hall Prize in Poetry. She teaches poetry workshops at the Unterberg Poetry Center of the 92nd Street Y and Poets House and directs the Center for Book Arts Annual Letter-press Poetry Chapbook Competition in New York City.
Madelon Sprengnether's new book of poems is Near Solstice: Prose Poems. Edward Hirsch says, "Madelon Sprengnether's short prose poems surprise us with their quick turns and telegraphic insights, their physical bearing—what she calls 'bodyworlds'—and spiritual poise. Near Solstice is a book of urgencies." She's also a memoirist, a critic, and a feminist psychoanalytic critic and theorist. Among her publications are The Angel of Duluth and The Normal Heart, poetry; Great River Road, Crying at the Movies, and Rivers, Stories, Houses, Dreams, memoir; and The (M)other Tongue: Essays in Feminist Psychoanalytic Criticism, Shakespearean Tragedy and Gender, and The Spectral Mother: Freud, Feminism and Psychoanalysis, feminist psychoanalytic criticism. She will be celebrating both her new book of poems and her new memoir, Great River Road: Memoir and Memory at this event.
