Kathleen Winter

Gregory Mahrer and Kathleen Winter

16 FEBRUARY 2017 — thursday

Poetry Flash presents a poetry reading by Kathleen Winter, Nostalgia for the Criminal Past, and Gregory Mahrer, A Provisional Map of the Lost Continent, request ASL interpreters one week in advance at, wheelchair accessible, Moe's Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, 7:30 (510/849-2087,

Gregory Mahrer's new book of poems is A Provisional Map of the Lost Continent, winner of the POL prize from Fordham University. Jane Hirshfield says, "With high-wire imagination and hybrid language, A Provisional Map of the Lost Continent surveys a world post-catastrophic, elasticized, semi-mythic yet founded in the real…at the center of every sentence is an irreversible, prophetic, and utterly accurate grief." The foreword to the book is by John Yau.
Kathleen Winter's debut book of poems is Nostalgia for the Criminal Past. Her work is also included in Far Out: Poems of the '60s. Norman Dubie says, "Kathleen Winter's first collection of poems is formally brilliant, life-hurtling, and volunteers language with a quick edge that advances ideas almost with abandon." She graduated from law school and worked some years as a lawyer before returning to poetry.
