MORE ABOUT THE READERS This reading celebrates The Art of Healing, a new book of poems co-authored by husband and wife, Charles and Gail Rudd Entrekin. The book details a merged double journey, his as a cancer patient, hers as his wife, lover, and caregiver, through each of their poetries. Ellen Bass says, "The Art of Healing is a fitting title for this volume that demonstrates that healing is, indeed, an art. It could also be called 'The Art of Loving' because the love between Charles and Gail is palpable and inspiring. And it could be called 'The Art of Living,' for it contains wise examples of how to be alive to each moment…." Author of five books of poetry and a novel, Red Mountain: Birmingham, Alabama, 1965, Charles Entrekin is the founder of the Creative Writing department at John F. Kennedy University and of the Berkeley Poets Workshop and Press. Currently he is the editor of the e-zine Sisyphus, a journal of literature, culture, and philosophy, and managing editor of Hip Pocket Press. Gail Rudd Entrekin is poetry editor of Hip Pocket Press and editor of the online environmental literary journal Canary. She's published four books of poetry, most recently Rearrangement of the Invisible.
