More about the readers
Brynn Saito's book of poems, The Palace of Contemplating Departure, was the winner of the 2011 Benjamin Saltman Award from Red Hen Press. Tina Chang says, "The body is merely a cage for the radiant and otherworldly in Brynn Saito's startling debut collection.…The manifold selves created here reside deeply inside mystery. These poems are fully alive as they struggle between opposing forces of life and death, conflict and peace, gods and demons, darkness and light, the material and heavenly." Her poetry has been selected for anthologies edited by Helen Vendler and Ishmael Reed, and she's been published in many literary journals.
Caroline Goodwin's new book of poems is Trapline. Donna de la Perrière says, "In Caroline Goodwin's Trapline, nature's flux and torque are embodied in a language that is taut, luscious and musical. These are poems of rot and salt, dragonflies and kinked reeds, where the world is always with us—raw and omnipresent, beautiful and terrible." Born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, she moved to the Bay Area in 1999 to attend Stanford University as a Stegner Fellow in poetry. Her sequence of five poems, Text Me, Ishmael, was published in 2012.
