Jeanne Foster and Paul Breslin

16 APRIL 2015 — thursday

Poetry Flash presents a poetry reading by Jeanne Foster and Paul Breslin, 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
Poetry Flash is pleased to host the book launch for Jeanne Foster's brand new book of poems, Goodbye, Silver Sister. Richard Tillinghast says, "Jeanne Foster is a poet of great originality, writing in a way that makes a reader feel he is entering deep into what Yeats called "the labyrinth of another's being." …Foster's poems are, in addition, transgressive, hinting at forbidden areas of life in a very Southern, very New Orleansian way—if there is such a word." Her first collection, A Blessing of Safe Travel, won the Quarterly Review of Literature Poetry Award. Her critical work, A Music of Grace, explores the sacred in contemporary poetry; she is co-editor of Appetite: Food as Metaphor, an anthology of poems by women; and she is also collaborating with Alan Williamson on a translation of the poems of Bianca Tarozzi from the Italian.
Paul Breslin's new book of poems is Between My Eye and the Light. Sandra M. Gilbert says, "Paul Breslin's accomplished new collection culminates in a dazzling display of abecedarian verve. Leading up to that triumph are poems witty and contemplative, fierce and forlorn—all captivating!" His previous collection is You Are Here. He is also author of the critical books The Psycho-Political Muse: American Poetry Since the Fifties and Nobody's Nation: Reading Derek Walcott. His co-translation of Aimé Césaire, The Tragedy of King Christophe, appeared in 2013.
