Lynne Knight

Lynne Knight and Beth Spencer

6 MAY 2018 — sunday

Poetry Flash presents a Sixteen Rivers Press Double Book Launch for Lynne Knight, The Language of Forgetting and Beth Spencer, The Cloud Museum, wheelchair accessible, East Bay Booksellers (formerly Diesel), 5433 College Avenue, Oakland, 3:00 (510/653-9965, ebbooksellers.com)

MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Lynne Knight's new book of poems is The Language of Forgetting. Al Young says, "Lynne Knight's mindful, lyrical The Language of Forgetting reads like a heart-and-soul video, Season One. Against a big backdrop of learn-and-let-go, each poem-episode streams me into her book's majestic mosaic, which I happen to feel as love vs. love." She has published five poetry chapbooks and five full-length collections, the most recent of which is The Persistence of Longing, which was nominated for a Northern California Book Award. Her work has appeared in Best American Poetry; other honors and awards include an NEA grant, a Prix de l'Alliance Française 2006, a Poetry Society of America Lucille Medwick Memorial Award, and the 2009 Rattle Poetry Award. I Know, her translation of Ito Naga's Je Sais, was published by Sixteen Rivers in 2013.
Beth Spencer's debut book of poems, also from Sixteen Rivers, is The Cloud Museum; the book explores two worlds, the persona of a sage named Alice and the persona of the artist Jay DeFeo; Pamela Uschuk says, "Rich in imagist language, Spencer's poems transcend simple explanation as they transform us at many levels. Much as an oil painting accrues power and depth layer by subtle layer, this collection opens out and out, bursting into the essence and vortex of mystery itself." She is the founder and editor of Bear Star Press, publishers of poetry and short fiction by writers in Western states.
