More about the readers
Beverley Bie Brahic is the author of White Sheets, short-listed for the Forward Prize, one of the UK's top poetry awards. The US/Canadian edition was nominated for Canada's Governor General's Award. Eavan Boland says of it, "These poems live and breathe in large subjects. They move easily from urban pastorals to domestic portraits, never losing their balance, always commanding their narratives." She has published one previous collection, Against Gravity, and a number of translations from the French, including Guillaume Apollinaire's The Little Auto; Francis Ponge's Unfinished Ode to Mud, a finalist for the 2009 Popescu Prize for Poetry in Translation; Julia Kristeva's This Incredible Need to Believe, a finalist for the 2010 French American Foundation Translation Prize; Jacques Derrida's Geneses, Genealogies, Genres, and Genius, and several works of Hélène Cixous, including Portrait of Jacques Derrida as a Young Jewish Saint.
Chana Bloch’s most recent book of poems is Blood Honey. Jane Hirshfield says of it, “These poems of intimate memory and sure-handed imagination survey the human condition with a tender, compassionate, unflinching gaze…Chana Bloch’s poems carry their reader into a hard-won, music-ripened wisdom.” She is the author of three previous books of poems, The Secrets of the Tribe, The Past Keeps Changing, and Mrs. Dumpty, and is a celebrated translator from the Hebrew. She is co-translator of The Song of Songs, The Selected Poetry of Yehuda Amichai, and Hovering at Low Altitude: The Collected Poetry of Dahlia Ravikovitch. Among her awards are the Poetry Society of America's Di Castagnola Award, the Felix Pollak Prize in Poetry, and the 2012 Meringoff Poetry Award.
Ann Fisher-Wirth’s new book of poems is Dream Cabinet. Camille T. Dungy says, “All the world and life are here, in the Dream Cabinet. Children, grandchildren, husbands, fathers, mothers, redwoods, dogwoods, tree frogs: the living and the dying and the dead…Ann Fisher-Wirth is a vital and a vibrant poet, and this is her best book yet.” Her other collections include Blue Window, Five Terraces, and Carta Marina: A Poem in Three Parts. She is also the co-editor, with Laura-Gray Street, of The Ecopoetry Anthology, just published, with an introduction by Robert Hass and over 700-pages of nature poetry and ecopoetry from Whitman to the present. Among her honors are a Malahat Review Long Poem Prize, the Rita Dove Poetry Award, and a 2007 Pushcart Special Mention.
