20 OCTOBER 2011 — thursday

More about the readers
Nina Corwin's new book of poems is The Uncertainty of Maps. Cyrus Cassells says of it, "I love the witty, rich urban music of Nina Corwin's poems, her blazingly inclusive lines that allow the world and her savvy perceptions of it to come rushing in." Her first book of poems is Conversations with Friendly Demons and Tainted Saints. She co-edited the anthology Inhabiting the Body: A Collection of Poetry and Art by Women, and she is Advisory Editor for Fifth Wednesday Journal as well as the curator of literary events at Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, where she lives and works as a psychotherapist.

Andrena Zawinski's new book of poems is Something About, which won a 2010 PEN Oakland Josephine Miles Award. Lynn Emanuel calls her "an articulate, urbane, sophisticated voice…the poems seethe with savvy and are packed with a bristling ironic intelligence." Her previous collections include Taking the Road Where it Leads and Traveling in Reflected Light, which won the Kenneth Patchen Prize in Poetry from Pig Iron Press. Her work has been widely published and anthologized, and she's been Features Editor at poetrymagazine.com since 2000.
