MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Kathy Evans's new full-length collection is Trespassers Welcome. Molly Giles says, "I love following Kathy's quick and nimble steps as she dances through language." She has also published three chapbooks, Imagination Comes to Breakfast, As the Heart is Held, and Hunger and Sorrow. She's taught in California Poets in the Schools, and in many other venues, and been an artist-in-residence at Headlands Center for the Arts. She is now poet-in-residence at Benioff Children's Hospital in Oakland and San Francisco.

Terri Glass's new full-length collection is Being Animal. Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge says, "Terri Glass celebrates, grieves, and finally embodies the hearts of animals in love poems that playfully and urgently encourage us to become all of who we are. Glass challenges us to enter our bodies like a bee that 'drops / into a poppy's cup.' 'What part of you…kills the flight of your imagination?' we are asked. Where do humans falter when we separate ourselves from the wild? Here animals become a metaphor for seeing new ways of being." She's also published a chapbook, Birds, Bees, Trees, Love, Hee Hee, and an e-book, The Wild Horse of Haiku: Beauty in a Changing Form, and a poetry and music CD, The Body of the Living Future. She is a writer of the natural world in poetry, including haiku, and in essays. Widely published in literary journals, her work has been anthologized in Fire and Rain: Ecopoetry of California, Earth Blessings, and elsewhere. She is a former director of California Poets in the Schools (2008-2011) and teaches in the program.
