More about the readers
Jennifer Elise Foerster's first book of poems is Leaving Tulsa. Joy Harjo says, "Wow. This first book of poems by Jennifer Foerster reminds me of the urgent vision fueling Kerouac's On the Road…Foester spins her poem-songs like wheels. She's from a younger generation, and not a man but a native woman trying to put the story of a broken people back together." A former Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, she is of mixed German, Dutch, and Muscogee descent and a member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma.
Andrew Schelling's new book of poems is A Possible Bag. Kit Robinson says of it, "Translator, scholar, poet Andrew Schelling works from linguistic roots both East (Sanskrit) and West (Arapaho) to imagine how we might relate to earth differently since we can now see human inhabitation as a limited engagement." Among his previous books of poems are From the Arapaho Songbook and Old Tale Road; he's published a collection of essays, Wild Form, Savage Grammar: Poetry, Ecology, Asia; the most recent of his translations from Sanskrit—he's been studying Sanskrit and Indian raga for thirty years—is Dropping the Bow: Poems of Ancient India.
