MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Iris Jamahl Dunkle's new book of poems is There's a Ghost in this Machine of Air. Ada Limón says, "Part historical journey through Northern California's loaded past, part deep praise of the land…There's a Ghost in this Machine of Air is a book of solitude, longing, landscape, and myth-making." Her first book of poems, Gold Passage, won the Trio Award; she's also published two chapbooks, Inheritance and The Flying Trolley. On the staff of the Napa Valley Writers conference and co-facilitator of the book discussion group at Jack London State Historic Park, she is at work on a biography of Jack London's wife, Charmian London.
Dana Gioia is California's brand new Poet Laureate. His new book of poems is 99 Poems: New & Selected. The Hudson Review calls him "One of today's masters of the genre, headed, ever more clearly, for whatever kind of immortality, in these prosaic times, awaits the best poets.…" He's published four previous books of poems, including Interrogations at Noon, which won an American Book Award, and Pity the Beautiful. His first book of criticism Can Poetry Matter? was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. From 2003 to 2009 he served as Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. He is also the editor of fifteen anthologies of poetry and fiction, a translator and a librettist. He worked for fifteen years as a business executive in New York before he quit in 1992 to write full-time.
