Nina Lindsay

Judy Halebsky and Nina Lindsay

7 AUGUST 2016 — sunday

Poetry Flash presents a poetry reading by Judy Halebsky and Nina Lindsay, request ASL interpreters one week in advance from, wheelchair accessible, Diesel, A Bookstore, 5433 College Avenue, Oakland, 3:00 (510/653-9965,

Judy Halebsky's most recent book is Tree Line. Dean Rader says, "Robert Frost believed a poem should begin in delight and end in wisdom, but in Tree Line, Judy Halebsky proves a poet never has to choose between the two—her poems begin in both and end in both. Smart, sexy, thoughtful, and beautiful, Halebsky's lyrics are a masterful marriage of tradition and innovation." Her first book, Sky=Empty, won the New Issues Prize and was a finalist for the California Book Award. Her chapbook, Space/Gap/Interval/Distance won the Poets-Under-Forty Award from Sixteen Rivers Press.
Nina Lindsay's new book of poems is Because. W. S. Di Piero says, "…Because is beautiful work. The poems pick through the things of the world, her world, exposing the unseen and intensifying the seen.…The familiar becomes, in her telling, unfamiliar and fraught.…The poems, too, even in their melancholies, are rapturous." Her first collection, Today's Special Dish, was published in 2007. She is a member of the Northern California Book Reviewers; among her honors is the Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Prize.
