MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Pattie McCarthy's new Apogee book of poems is Quiet Book. Julie Carr says, "…Quiet Book keeps its steady gaze on the mother/child unit—from the inside out and back in again. In gorgeous poems of formal range and daring, McCarthy gives us birth and motherhood like no other writer—she is unafraid, she is wry and at times she is deeply tender." Among her previous collections are Marybones, Table Alphabetical of Hard Words, Verso, and bk of (h)rs. She was awarded a Pew Fellowship in the Arts in 2011, and was an artist resident at the Elizabeth Bishop House in Great Village, Nova Scotia in 2013.
Denise Newman's new Apogee book is Future People. She is a poet and a translator. Her books of poetry include The New Make Believe, Wild Goods, and Human Forest. She's translated Azorno and The Painted Room, both by the late Danish poet Inger Christensen, and Baboon by Naja Marie Aidt, which won the PEN Translation Award. In 2014 she received a Creative Work Fund grant and an NEA fellowship in translation.
Laura Walker's new Apogee book of poems is story. Maxine Chernoff says, "Walker's rich and delicate story of natural forces, human forces, master narratives, and secret moments whispered on deathbeds is as whole and fragile as any fine sequence of poems….It is the story of herself and the story of the story. It is a dance of life and death and a music to live by." Her previous collections are Follow-Haswed, bird book, rimertown/an atlas, and swarm lure.
