Amanda Nadelberg, Mira Rosenthal, and Elisabeth Frost

24 MAY 2012 — thursday

Poetry Flash presents a poetry reading by Amanda Nadelberg, Bright Brave Phenomena, Mira Rosenthal, The Local World, and Elisabeth Frost, All of Us, Moe's Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, 7:30 (510/849-2087, moesbooks.com)

More about the readers
Elisabeth Frost's first full-length book of poems is All of Us. Alicia Ostriker says, "In the white space out beyond Elisabeth Frost's cropped tales, subtle situations, plausible and bizarre fantasias, you may sense the ghosts of Kafka and Borges strolling. But these delicious, low-key, disturbing and always surprising prose poemsŠare a world unto themselves." She has also published the chapbook Rumor and a critical study, The Feminist Avant-garde in American Poetry. She is co-editor, as well, of Innovative Women Poets: An Anthology of Contemporary Poetry and Interviews. She is founder and editor of the Poets Out Loud Book Series from Fordham University Press.
Amanda Nadelberg's new book is Bright Brave Phenomena. Timothy Donnelly says, "Nadelberg's second collection offers dizzying shifts in scale and boldly propulsive logic from the stability of poems scrupulously attentive to what the aircraft industry calls 'structural integrity.'…This is a beautifully affirming book." Her first collection, Isa the Truck Named Isadore, was winner of the 2005 Slope Editions Book Prize.
Mira Rosenthal's first book of poems, The Local World, was the 2010 winner of the Stan and Tom Wick Poetry Prize selected by Maggie Anderson, who says, "In poem after poem of The Local World, the human body and the land are at risk. What mitigates the danger is the power of language to reshape experience.…What an eye for the precise detail this poet has, and what wild music!" She is a Stegner Fellow at Stanford University.
