MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Ellen Bass’s new book of poems is Like a Beggar. Toi Derricotte says, “Good poets help us to see the world in a new way; great ones open the mind to new ways of conceiving that world and our connections to it. Like a Beggar does this for me.” Among her previous collections are The Human Line and Mules of Love. She co-edited the groundbreaking anthology of women’s poetry, No More Masks! and her non-fiction includes the bestseller The Courage to Heal.
Robin Becker’s new book of poems is Tiger Heron. Ellen Bass says of it, “Robin Becker looks straight at the failures of our human species, yet never loses her compassion or reduces the complexities and paradoxes to easy conclusions. Deftly, precisely, these poems express their wisdom in lines that surprise and delight.” Author of seven poetry collections, including Domain of Perfect Affection, Giacometti’s Dog, and All-American Girl, which won the Lambda Literary Award, she is poetry editor and writes a column on poetry for the Women’s Review of Books. Among her honors are fellowships from the Bunting Institute, Massachusetts Cultural Council, and National Endowment for the Arts.
