MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Lola Haskins's recent book of poems is The Grace to Leave. W.S. Merwin says of it, "She writes with the startling freedom and grace of a kite flying, and with the variety and assurance of invention that reveal, in image after image, the dream behind the waking world." She has published nine books of poetry, including Still the Mountain and The Rim Benders. Among her honors are two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, an Iowa Poetry Prize, and the Emily Dickinson Award from the Poetry Society of America. 


Lynne Knight's most recent book of poems is Again; she's published four books of poems in all, and four chapbooks. She's received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, won the Prix de l'Alliance Française 2006, a Lucille Medwick Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America, the RATTLE Poetry Prize, and she's appeared in Best American Poetry. Her translation, with the author, of Ito Naga's Je sais, I Know appeared in 2013.
