MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Join us for this celebration for Sixteen Rivers Press's two new collections!

Stella Beratlis's new book of poems is Dust Bowl Venus. Rosa Lane says, "Stella Beratlis's Dust Bowl Venus animates California's Central Valley as a postmodern Prometheus, an eco-sapient Frankenstein with whom we wrangle, wrestle, and fall madly in love." Her first book, Alkali Sink, was nominated for a Northern California Book Reviewers Award in 2016. Widely published in literary journals, her work has also been anthologized in The Place That Inhabits Us: Poems from the San Francisco Bay Watershed and California Fire and Water: A Climate Crisis Anthology. Poet Laureate of Modesto 2016-2020, she is co-editor of More Than Soil, More Than Sky: The Modesto Poets.

Dane Cervine's new book of poems is The World Is God's Language, prose poems. Gary Young says, "Cervine reveals a sanctified world built of memory, history, and grace, where God is evanescent, transient but eternal, and where, Cervine makes clear, we are 'just visiting'" He's published six previous collections, most recently Earth Is a Fickle Dancer. His work has appeared in many journals and been anthologized in Ghost Fishing: An Eco-Justice Poetry Anthology and Fire and Rain: Ecopoetics of California. He lives in Santa Cruz and works there as a therapist, where he's a former head of Children's Mental Health for Santa Cruz County.
