MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Rose Black's newest book of poems is Green Field. David St. John says, "Rose Black's superb collection of poems, Green Field, is a sobering volume of recollections, reflections and meditations upon a life's ravaged hopes, the echoes of a personal past, and the raw realities of our present." Her first two collections, Clearing and Winter Light, are included in Yale University's Beinecke Library Collection of American Literature. She has been editor of the Marin Poetry Center Anthology, and teaches poetry at Salinas Valley State Prison, which has inspired some of the poems she'll be reading.
Shelley Savren's new book of poems is The Wild Shine of Oranges. Dorianne Laux says, "These frank, tightly-crafted narratives recount the sounds of protest and are testament to lives lost and shared, where, in moments of mercy, 'there are no shadows.'" Her first book of poems is The Common Fire. She has taught workshops for homeless, abused, neglected and emotionally disturbed youths, developmentally disturbed adults, at juvenile halls, at a maximum security men's prison, and for every grade through California Poets in the Schools.
