MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Kerry James Evans’s debut book of poems is Bangalore. Booklist calls it, “A strong contribution to wartime poetry composed by combatants…Given recent controversy over domestic surveillance and enlisted whistle-blowers, this is a necessary read, indeed.” He served six years in the Army National Guard as a combat engineer.
Travis Mossotti’s debut collection, About the Dead, is a May Swenson Award winner. Garrison Keillor, in his foreword, says, “…reading it was like following the poet up a steep climb on a rocky slope as he improvised his route, and at every step I was struck by the rightness of his choices, surprised by so many odd words that seemed so exactly right.” He was awarded the James Hearst Poetry Prize from the North American Review in 2009, and the book’s long opening poem, “Decampment,” was adapted as an animated film in 2010.
