Victoria Chang and David Roderick

12 MARCH 2015 — thursday

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

MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Victoria Chang's recent book of poems is The Boss, from McSweeney's. G. C. Waldrep says, "Part meditation on corporate life, part exploration of mother- and daughterhood, part elegy for a father who has not yet died, The Boss is essential reading for anyone who has ever had a job, a child, a parent, or a heart." Her previous collections include Circle, winner of the 2005 Crab Orchard Open Competition, and Salvinia Molesta. She works in business and lives with her family in Southern California.
David Roderick's new book of poems is The Americans. Natasha Trethewey says, "The Americans is a compelling meditation on the ways we go about our lives at this cultural moment, often unmoored from the facts of history, though we drift along its shores…The poet asks: 'Must nostalgia/ walk like a prince through all our rooms?' This lovely collection shows us a way to confront that question within ourselves." A former Wallace Stegner fellow at Stanford University, he is also the author of a debut collection, Blue Colonial, winner of the APR/Honickman Prize.
