Poetry Flash presents a poetry reading by Gillian Conoley and Matthew Cooperman, request ASL interpreters one week in advance at, wheelchair accessible, Moe's Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, 7:30 (510/849-2087,

Matthew Cooperman's new book of poems is Spool, Winner of the New Measure Poetry Prize. Rae Armantrout says, "Spool is a hive of words continuously active and also continuously threatened with a sort of colony collapse. Written in conversation with such past greats as Shakespeare, Milton, Hopkins, Spool is a way of inhabiting our present." His previous collections include the text + image collaboration Imago for the Fallen World with Marius Lehene, Still: of the Earth as the Ark which Does Not Move, DaZE, and A Sacrificial Zinc, winner of the Lena-Miles Wever Todd Prize. He's a founding editor of Quarter After Eight and co-poetry editor of Colorado Review.
Gillian Conoley's latest book of poems is Peace. Yusef Komunyakaa says "Gillian Conoley's Peace encompasses the wholeness of a world vision." Peace was named an American Academy of Poets Standout Book for 2014. She is the author of seven other collections, including Tall Stranger, finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. Her most recent publication is Thousand Times Broken: Three Books, her translation of three previously untranslated books of Henri Michaux. Cole Swensen says, "This is an invaluable addition to Michaux's works in English, filling an important gap with a vivid, vibrant linguistic performance." Editor/founder of VOLT, she's been anthologized in American Hybrid and Postmodern American Poetry, and her honors include a Jerome J. Shestack Award from The American Poetry Review, a Fund for Poetry Award, and a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.
