More about the readers
These two books are new releases from the Bay Area collective, Sixteen Rivers Press. Judy Halebsky’s new book of poems is Space/Gap/Interval. Dean Rader says of it, “Influenced by Japanese kanji characters and the haiku tradition, this beautiful book locates the big in the small. Magic, memory, and mutability drive these poems through fabulous places.” Her first collection, Sky = Empty won the New Issues Poetry Prize and was a finalist for the California Book Award. Born and raised in Nova Scotia, she studied art and literature in Japan for five years on fellowships from the Japanese Ministry of Culture. She edits and translates the bilingual poetry journal Eki Mae with a collective of Tokyo poets. Jacqueline Kudler’s new book of poems is Easing into Dark. David St. John says, “The power and consolations of family resonate throughout all the poems in Jacqueline Kudler’s moving and deeply reflective new collection Easing into Dark…a volume to savor again and again.” Sacred Precinct, her first full-length collection, was published by Sixteen Rivers in 2003. She received the Marin Arts Council Board Award in 2005 and the Marin Poetry Center Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010.
