Poetry Flash presents Lisa Sewell and Emily Wolahan, 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
Lisa Sewell's new book of poems is Impossible Object, winner of the 2014 Tenth Gate Prize. Linda Gregerson says, "These poems are urgent; they are fresh; they acknowledge no divisions in the world…And this is the Impossible Object espoused in each and every line: connection in its purest form." Lisa Sewell's previous books include The Way Out and Name Withheld, as well as the chapbook Long Corridor, winner of the 2009 Keystone Chapbook Award. She is co-editor with Claudia Rankine of two anthologies, American Poets in the 21st Century: The New Poetics and Eleven More American Women Poets in the 21st Century: Poetics Across North America. Among her honors are grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
Emily Wolahan's debut collection is Hinge. Timothy Donnelly says, "Hinge is a book fixated on contingency and what it might mean to live in it.…This awareness walks hand in hand with Wolahan's almost preternatural sensitivity to cause and effect, the syntax of the physical and the interplay of the parts that make up any given whole. More than any younger poet I can think of, Wolahan is attuned to the engineering of the world she walks through as well as to the musical possibilities it suggests.…" Her essays have been published widely; she's Editor and co-founder of Jerry magazine, and she has collaborated with artist Joshua Thomson on his multi-media project "Platinum Metres."
