More about the readers
Daphne Gottlieb's new book of poetry is 15 Ways to Stay Alive, in which "broken hearts, scattered dreams, postpunk politics, and postmodern cut-up collages come together to explore survival after personal and communal disaster." A performance poet and spoken word artist, she earned her MFA at Mills College and is also the author and editor of nine books, including the poetry collections Kissing Dead Girls, Why Things Burn, and Pelt, as well as the graphic novel Jokes and the Unconscious, with artist Diane DiMassa. Final Girl was the winner of the Audre Lorde Award in Poetry and was named one of the Village Voice's Favorite Books of 2003; she was a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award three times. Widely published in journals and anthologies, her work has been translated into Turkish and Greek, and has inspired theatrical adaptations and DJ-remixes. Besides anchoring three national performance poetry tours, Gottlieb has also appeared with the all-girl performance poetry troupe Sister Spit and has performed at festivals coast-to-coast, including South by Southwest, Bumbershoot, and Ladyfest Bay Area.

Danielle Montgomery's recent book of poems is The Woman You Write Poems About. Thea Hillman says, "In Danielle Montgomery's poetry, faith rides shotgun with hopelessness, and at the last minute grabs the wheel, dropping us off at our destination salvation." She writes about class, economic struggle, and the search for sanity and human dignity.
