MORE ABOUT THE READERS
A Celebration and Reading for Four Way Books!
Karen Brennan’s new book is Monsters, stories, a collection of thirty-eight innovative fictions. Lance Olsen says, “Monsters takes the form of an extraordinary wunderkammer filled with narraticules…about what can’t stay, what was probably never there to begin with, and the beauty of that, and the biting loss.” Her previous book, little dark, is a hybrid of poems and prose threaded together as memoir. Her other previous books include two books of poems, Here on Earth and The Real Enough World, two books of short fiction, and a memoir. Her fiction and poetry are widely anthologized, and she’s the recipient of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. She is Professor Emerita at the University of Utah and teaches at the Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers.
Elizabeth T. Gray, Jr.’s new book of poems is Series | India. Jennifer Grotz calls it “a gorgeously-woven book-length sequence of poems that moves from New York to India, from a dying mother to a motley group of spiritual seekers.” Elizabeth T. Gray is a poet, translator, and corporate consultant. She has published translations from classical and contemporary Persian, and is currently collaborating on the translation of a Tibeto-Mongolian folk epic.
