More about the readers
Terry Wolverton’s new book is a novel, Stealing Angel, dealing with questions of custody, child abuse, conflict between lesbian lovers, set, for the crux of its action, in a spiritual commune in the southern Baja town of Todos Santos. Wolverton has published Embers, a novel-in-poems, two other prose novels, a memoir, a short story collection, and several books of poems. She’s edited fourteen literary anthologies, including (with Robert Drake) the award-winning six-volume series: His: Brilliant New Fiction by Gay Men and Hers: Brilliant New Fiction by Lesbians. From a working-class background, she is a feminist, an activist, and the founder of Writers At Work, a creative writing center in L.A.

Devreaux Baker's new book of poems is Red Willow People. Jack Hirschman says of it, "A brava book of poems by a poet who knows how to surrender to all that metaphor can still make happen…she is returning the land that is Native American to the People she enunciates, in a form of a book, and not simply a book that she's written. And that is the wonderful mystery this work evokes." Baker has published to previous books of poetry, Beyond the Circumstance of Sight and Light at the Edge, and she was an editor of Wood, Water, Air and Fire: The Anthology of Mendocino County Women Poets.
