More about the readers
This poetry and prose reading celebrates San Luis Obispo-based Word Palace Press, publisher of all six writers.
Michael Hannon's new collection, Who On Earth, is a selection from three letterpress chapbooks published by Jerry Reddan at Tangram in Berkeley. Sam Hamill says, "Michael Hannon's poems are full of the resonance that comes only from an understanding of silence…the kind of poems one wants to lift out of a book and into memory." Lee Perron will read from his forthcoming book of poems Celtic Light. Also an antiquarian bookman, he has published twelve chapbooks, including Psyche & Cubism. Joe Riley's new book of fiction, How Strange It Is To Be Anything At All, was praised by San Francisco Golden Gate Express as "part story, part life manual for the young and urban. It's a celebration of a very uncertain age and time in life…and commemorating existence in general." When not writing songs for garage bands in San Francisco, he is completing work on a romantic novella and a novel. Leslie St. John's new book of poems is Beauty Like A Rope. Jim Cushing says of it, "…having lost one eye in an absurd accident ("She Washed My Hair" tells the harrowing story), Leslie St. John has let the poet in her see with a unique third eye…with an accurate, compassionate, wisdom-inviting gaze." Peter Dale Scott is Professor Emeritus at UC Berkeley, and the author of Coming to Jakarta: A Poem About Terror, among many other books and articles. He will be reading from his forthcoming collection, Tilting Point. Kevin Patrick Sullivan's new book of poems is Under Such Brilliance. Dian Sousa says of it, "Kevin Patrick Sullivan wakes up every day in love with the world. He is an ecstatic descendent of Rumi, but his poems illuminate the roots of joy growing in a more difficult terrain."
