More about the readers
George Higgins's first book of poems is There, There, a subtle tapestry of his African American heritage and his work as a criminal defense attorney. His work was anthologized in Best American Poetry 2003 and has appeared (or is forthcoming) in many literary journals including 88, Pleiades, Nimrod, Poetry Flash, and SLAB.
Greg Wrenn's first book of poems, Centaur, won the Brittingham Prize in Poetry. Eavan Boland says of it, "These powerful poems mark the aliveness, suffering and sensuality of the body. They map out erotic adventures and the loneliness of human need." A former Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, he is a recipient of the Lyric Poetry Award from the Poetry Society of America.
