More about the readers
This is a reading in celebration of Canarium Books, which has published the first two poets and whose director and co-editor is the third.

Robert Fernandez's first book of poems is We Are Pharoah; Ange Mlinko says, "We Are Pharoah is a luscious saturnalia of language, adapting New York School painterliness to an erotic tropical sensibility." He is the recipient of fellowships from the Iowa Writers' Workshop and the University of Iowa Department of English.

Ish Klein is both a filmmaker and a poet. Her new book of poems is Moving Day. Colorado Review says, "It's as if Walt Whitman fathered a child with Florence Nightingale and that child were standing on a rooftop in Brooklyn and sounding her benevolent yelp." As a filmmaker she received a 2005 NEA Digital Filmmaker Residency.

Joshua Edwards's first book of poems is Campeche, which also showcases the photographs of Van Edwards: "The poems and photographs in Campeche slowly circle the elements, animals, and voices of a world slipping out of reach. Titled after pirate Jean Lafitte's name for Galveston Island, the book is also a meditation on two islands (one real, one imaginary) that overlap in the minds of the poet and the photographer…" Joshua Edwards is the director and co-editor of Canarium Books. Currently a Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, he is also a translator, having published Ficticia, a book-length poem by the Mexican poet Maria Baranda.
