Ginger Murchison and Murray Silverstein

Ginger Murchison's first full-length book of poems, a scrap of linen, a bone, is the Tom Lombardo Selection for Press 53. David Baker says, "From where she stands in her fine first book of poems, Ginger Murchison can see in many directions—back to Stone Mountain and the earlier generations of her family, forward into the prospective futures of her progeny….Murchison is a gifted lyric poet with a flair for story and character; thus, one by one, her rich, ever-focused poems cohere into an expansive historical document." She founded "Poetry at Tech," Georgia Institute of Technology's poetry program and reading series, with Thomas Lux; she is a member of the Board of Trustees at the Robert Frost Place in Franconia, New Hampshire and a consulting faculty member for the annual Palm Beach Poetry Festival.
Murray Silverstein's latest book of poems is Master of Leaves. Dawn McGuire says, "Written by a master architect…these poems scale up and down to reveal hauntingly similar patterns in nature and patterns of human consciousness in nature. Here, language is erotically charged, generative seed of fresh unfolding." His first book of poems is Any Old Wolf. An architect as well as a poet, he is co-author of four books about architecture, including the classic A Pattern Language.
