Brittany Perham and Matthew Siegel

21 SEPTEMBER 2017 — thursday

Poetry Flash presents a poetry reading by Brittany Perham, Double Portrait, and Matthew Siegel, Blood Work, request ASL interpreters one week in advance at editor@poetryflash.org, wheelchair accessible, Moe's Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, 7:30 (510/849-2087, www.moesbooks.com)


MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Brittany Perham's new book of poems, Double Portrait, was the winner of the 2016 Barnard Women Poets Prize, selected by Claudia Rankine, who says, "Double Portrait, by turns playful, mournful, indulgent, musical, insightful, and all the way human, comes clean about our most driving desires…imaginative and familiar, the result is full of humor that is both rueful and sensual." A Jones lecturer in the Creative Writing Program at Stanford University where she was a Stegner Fellow, she is author of the previous collection The Curiosities and co-author, with Kim Addonizio, of the chapbook The Night Could Go in Either Direction.
Matthew Siegel's debut book of poems, Blood Work, was winner of the 2015 Felix Pollak Prize in Poetry, selected by Lucia Perillo, who says, "These poems resist the dualities of lyric versus narrative, confessional versus impersonal, real against surreal, formal/improvisational, comic/sad. Matthew Siegel manages to tick off all the boxes at once, while remaining compulsively readable. The trick that he's pulled off is to make a book that simultaneously tickles you and shakes you by the scruff of your neck." He, too, is a former Stegner Fellow at Stanford.
