14 JUNE 2012 — thursday

Poetry Flash presents a reading by Jessica Fisher and Margaret Ronda, Moe's Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, 7:30 (510/849-2087, www.moesbooks.com; wheelchair accessible, ASL interpreters for the deaf and hearing impaired may be requested a week in advance by email, editor@poetryflash.org)

More about the readers
Jessica Fisher's new book of poems is Inmost. Louise Glück says of it, "Her poems are analytic meditations, their variety and beauty manifestations of extraordinary sensitivity to English syntax." Her first book, Frail-Craft, was chosen by Louise Glück for the 2006 Yale Younger Poets Award and was a finalist for the Northern California Book Award.
Margaret Ronda's first book of poems is Personification; it was chosen for the Saturnalia Books Poetry Prize by Carl Phillips, who says, "The poems of Personification fascinate—as in, bind fast—the reader with their invitation to join "a pilgrim's journey chastened by ruin…Here is a strange and arresting vision, indeed."
