MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Sixteen Rivers Press Book Launch!
Patrick Cahill's new book of poems is The Machinery of Sleep, a book of jazz-infused prose poems. Widely published in literary journals, his poetry has twice won the Central Coast Writers Award. He is a cofounder and editor of Ambush Review, a San Francisco literary and arts journal, and was a contributing editor for the Sonoma County anthology Digging Our Poetic Roots.
Terry Ehret's new book is her co-translation of the poet Ulalume González de León, born in Uruguay and later a Mexican citizen. Plagios/Plagiarisms, their translation, is the title Ulalume González de León chose for her collected poems. She won some of Latin America's most coveted awards and was of a generation of women poets challenging traditional ideas of feminine identity. Terry Ehret, one of the founders of Sixteen Rivers Press, has published four books of poems, most recently Night Sky Journey. Among her honors are the National Poetry Series, a California Book Award, and the Pablo Neruda Poetry Prize. She served as Sonoma County Poet Laureate, 2004-2006.
Eliot Schain's new book of poems is The Distant Sound, a prismatic meditation on what it means to be human seeking a path to heaven. His work has been widely published in literary journals and anthologized in The Place That Inhabits Us: Poems of the San Francisco Bay Watershed and in Bear Flag Republic: Prose Poems and Poetics from California. His previous collections are American Romance and Westering Angels. He has served as program director for the Poetry Society of America, was a career high school teacher, and is now a practicing psychotherapist.
