More about the readers
All three of these poets’ books are among the initial offerings of the new, Berkeley-based Kelly’s Cove Press. Night Sky Journey is Terry Ehret’s fourth book of poems. Ursula K. Le Guin says of it, “Her play with forms works always towards ease and freedom. Her timing is faultless, a joy in itself; and her fearlessness is exhilarating.” Among her honors are publication in the National Poetry Series, the California Book Award, and the Pablo Neruda Poetry Prize. A co-founder of Sixteen Rivers Press, she is a former poet laureate of Sonoma County. Morning Opera is Bart Schneider’s second book of poems. Jim Moore says of it, “There is mystery at the heart of things…And at the heart of the mystery there is a music which Bart Schneider has found a way to make a home for in these poems.” Schneider is also the acclaimed author of four novels, perhaps the best known of which is Man in the Blizzard. He is the publisher of Kelly’s Cove Press; he also was the founding editor of Hungry Mind Review. What Lures the Foxes is Mike Tuggle’s third book of poems. Jonah Raskin praises it: “After reading these poems you know they’ve been handcrafted, then held like a rock or a flower before being released into the world.” A former poet laureate of Sonoma County, he is the recipient of a Dickens Award in fiction and the Oberon Poetry Prize.
