Poetry Flash presents a reading by Beverly Burch and Katherine Hastings, request ASL interpreters one week in advance from editor@poetryflash.org, wheelchair accessible, Moe's Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, 7:30 (510/849-2087, www.moesbooks.com)

MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Beverly Burch’s new book of poems is How a Mirage Works. Cyrus Cassells says, “How a Mirage Works [is] marked by a subtle, free-flowing music and an almost surgical attention to sensuous, definitive detail…Her work is blessedly sane and concise.” Her first book of poems, Sweet to Burn, won the Gival Poetry Prize and a Lambda Literary Award. A psychotherapist as well as a poet, she has also published two nonfiction books, On Intimate Terms and Other Women.
Katherine Hastings’s new book of poems is Nighthawks. Gerald Fleming says, “If there’s such a thing as fierce Buddhism, Katherine Hastings’ Nighthawks finds it. Here is nature in minutely observed, embroidered detail, juxtaposed with terse and stark observations keyed from Rexroth’s ‘holiness of the real.’” Her first full-length collection is Cloud Fire. She’s the editor of What Redwoods Know: Poems from California State Parks, which was sold to benefit the California State Parks Foundation. She’s also executive director of the nonprofit WordTemple, host of WordTemple on NPR affiliate KRCB FM, and curator of the WordTemple Poetry Series and WordTemple Arts and Lectures in Sonoma County, California.
