More about the readers
Carol V. Davis's new book of poems is Between Storms. Elaine Terranova says, "In ravishing line after line, Carol V. Davis balances between cultures, between generations, and, yes, between storms. She traces her family's odyssey back to the old world against the tide of survivors escaping from it…The voice of these poems is true and constant, finding a still, tender center in the upheaval of living." She won the 2007 T. S. Eliot Prize for a previous collection Into the Arms of Pushkin: Poems of St. Petersburg. She was a senior Fulbright scholar in Russia 1996-7 and 2005; she published It's Time to Talk About… in a bilingual collection in Russia in 1997, and had her poetry read on Radio Russia, as well on National Public Radio here in this country.
Grace Marie Grafton's new book of poems is Whimsey, Reticence and Laud, a book of sonnets each triggered by one word which serves as the title; the poem then tries to embody the spirit of the word. Her other books of poems include Other Clues, a book of prose poems, Visiting Sisters, poems inspired by artwork of contemporary women, and the chapbook Zero, winner of the Poetic Matrix Press contest. She is a coordinator of the Last Word reading series at Nefeli Café in Berkeley.
