Poetry Flash presents a reading by Bruce Isaacson and Jan Steckel, wheelchair accessible, request ASL interpreters one week in advance from editor @poetryflash.org, Moe's Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, 7:30 (510/849-2087, moesbooks.com)

More about the readers
Bruce Isaacson is one of the pioneers of spoken word in San Francisco, a galvanizing performer of his work, and editor of Zeitgeist Press. His new book of poems is the chapbook, Book of Rebellions; his other recent books of poetry include Dumbstruck at the Lights in the Sky and Ghosts Among the Neon. Former San Francisco Poet Laureate Jack Hirschman says, "[Isaacson] gives his realist and insightful eye to seeing and revealing how poetry remains the king of affirmation amid devastating negations and the ghosting of the soul."
Jan Steckel is a poet and a retired Harvard and Yale-trained pediatrician and activist for bisexual and disability rights. Her new book of poems, The Horizontal Poet, a 2012 Lambda Literary Award-winner, is audacious, worldly, and deeply compassionate. Mixing Tracks, published in 2009, won the Gertrud Press Fiction Chapbook Award, and her previous book of poems, The Underwater Hospital, won a Rainbow Award for lesbian and bisexual poetry.
