This reading is co-sponsored by Moe's Books in Berkeley; the featured books are available at bookshop.org/lists/poetry-flash-readings.

Maxima Kahn's first full-length collection of poems is Fierce Aria. Annie Finch says, "I have learned to walk into the valley of my fears and losses," writes Maxima Kahn, and the evidence of what she has learned is all over these amazing poems. Fierce Aria is a book with a post-Wallace Stevens mission: to coax the still perfection of ideas out of the abstract realm, so they can take shape in the messy wilderness of reality. Distinctive, honed, vulnerable, musical, courageous, honest, Maxima Kahn's poems are fully ripened, fully considered—each one ready to drop richly into the hand like a subtly contoured fruit." Kahn also writes poetry, essays and fiction. Her work has been featured in numerous literary journals, and on blogs such as The Creative Penn, Tiny Buddha, Positively Positive and The Startup; her own blog is Creative Sparks at BrilliantPlayground.com. She is also an improvisational violinist, a composer, and a dancer. She lives in the Sierra Nevada in California.

Indigo Moor's new book is Everybody's Jonesin' for Something, recipient of The Backwaters Prize in Poetry, Honorable Mention, University of Nebraska Press. Cornelius Eady says, "I strongly suggest you carry Moor's brilliant book, Everybody's Jonesin' for Something, home.…In this dazzling book, you will read just how closely this poet has been paying attention, to us, to his histories, foreign and domestic, to our mighty (and sometimes mighty confusing) nation. Jonesin' is a verse flashlight to all the corners you thought no one was supposed to pay attention to, line by beautifully crafted line, truth by earned truth. You'll reach the last line of the last poem, and trust me, that's when the hunger for more will begin." Also a scriptwriter, Moor is Poet Laureate emeritus of Sacramento. His other works include Tap-Root, Through the Stonecutter's Window (winner of the Northwestern University's Cave Canem Prize), and In the Room of Thirsts and Hungers: The Mirrored Tragedies of Paul Robeson and Othello.
