MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Scott Edward Anderson's new book of poems is Dwelling: an ecopoem. David Gessner says, "In the spirit of Gary Snyder's Turtle Island and The Practice of the Wild, Scott Edward Anderson leads us on a journey into place and the idea of place…driven by the burning questions of how we find a home on this planet, in this transient, often brutal world, and how we heal through home." He's published two previous collections, FallowField and Walks in Nature's Empire. He's been a Concordia Fellow at the Millay Colony for the Arts and he has received the Nebraska Review Award.

Lucille Lang Day has published ten poetry collections and chapbooks, including Becoming an Ancestor and Dreaming of Sunflowers: Museum Poems. She is coeditor of and contributor to the recently published Fire and Rain: Ecopoetry of California, and Red Indian Road West: Native American Poetry from California. She is also the author of two children's books, Chain Letter and The Rainbow Zoo, as well as a memoir, Married at Fourteen: A True Story, nominated for the Northern California Book Award in Creative Nonfiction. Her poems, essays, and short stories have appeared widely in magazines and anthologies, and her many honors include the Joseph Henry Jackson Award in Literature, two PEN Oakland awards, and nine Pushcart nominations.
