MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Heather June Gibbons's debut book of poems is Her Mouth as Souvenir, which won the Agha Shahid Ali Poetry Prize. A graduate of the Iowa Writer's Workshop, she has also authored two chapbooks, Sore Songs and Flyover. Widely published in literary journals, she has received awards and fellowships from the Academy of American Poets, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, and the Vermont Studio Center. She teaches at San Francisco State University.

Terese Svoboda's new book is the prose work Anything That Burns You: A Portrait of Lola Ridge, Radical Poet. Robert Pinsky says, "Radical. Modernist, fiery, glamorous, feminist–adjectives and categories can only gesture toward the enduringly significant life and works of the poet Lola Ridge, whose story has been gracefully told, with her poems lucidly understood by Terese Svoboda." She is the author of six highly acclaimed novels and five books of poetry, most recently Professor Harriman's Steam Air-Ship, as well as Cleaned the Crocodile's Teeth, a translation from the South Sudanese language Nuer. Her opera Wet premiered at L.A.'s Disney Hall in 2005. Among her honors are a 2013 Guggenheim Fellowship, the Bobst Prize, an Iowa Poetry Prize, an O. Henry Award for the short story, and three New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships.
